Miles: 24

PNT mile 561

Camp: By a small creek on Sherman Peak, WA

I didn’t write a blog on this day. It was a long, hot day. We finished our dirt road walking and finally got back on trail. It made a world of difference to be on a soft dirt path again. It felt great.

We climbed up to the Kettle Crest and made our way to Sherman Pass. We hiked until after dark and made a poor camp out of sheer exhaustion. At least there was water!

Nothing exciting to report. It was a long, hot and smoky day. I think the smoke is adding to the exhaustion levels…we were pretty beat!
