Start: tentsite at mile 2572
End: Porcupine Creek
Miles covered: 21
PCT mile marker: 2593/2652
Highlight: Vibrant fall colors. (Honorable mention: The massive cinnamon bun we* packed out from the bakery in Stehekin. Thanks to hiker hunger, it was gone in 20 minutes. *To be fair, Windy packed it out and I assumed we would share it. He said he didn’t want any, and who was I to argue?)
Biggest challenge: Unexpected heat in the afternoon. It wasn’t terribly hot, maybe 80s F, but I was already adjusting to the cold.
