Biggest challenge: A very cold morning. It was below freezing until about 9am, so I waited until later than usual to start hiking. I have experienced much colder weather while backpacking, but I don’t have sufficient gear for comfort much below freezing on this trip. Keeping my fingers and toes warm is a particular challenge. For that reason, I used ziplock bags to protect my dry socks from my wet shoes.

Side note: Phone signal and wifi have been rare in northern Washington. I might not be able to continue these updates until I finish the trail and return to civilization.
