PCT Trail Angel Hike North Past Gillette Lake in WA

Hike Distance: 7.7 miles      Yearly Hike Distance: 1155.9 miles

Elevation Gain: 1249 feet      Yearly Elevation Gain: 121758 feet

I spent the day providing trail magic north of Bridge of the Gods in WA, near Gillette Lake. Many of the thru hikers had stuffed themselves, at the local restaurants in Cascade Locks, OR, so they weren’t too interested in the Oreo Cookies or Starbucks Via Coffee packets. This only made me work harder to convince others that they needed the extra sugar and caffeine! haha I met a great bunch of thru-hikers, and some section hikers: Cake & Sting, Patches & Wrecking Ball, Shades, Soulful and Yoav! The heat and smoke expected, in the PNW during the next week, is worrisome and I hope everyone takes this into account while hiking!    This weekend my wife and I plan to provide some trail magic in Indian Heaven Wilderness (WA), and hope to meet many more thru-hikers!
