BG drew the short day which was a winner all around for her, good trail, not too many climbs and no steep down hills. It was however another day in dense forest, pleasant given the heat but not much for the generation of Kodak moments. Smoke from forest fires is restricting visibility, Mt Hood, ten miles distant from where I took the picture is barely visible.
Fires, fires everywhere, fires behind us and fires ahead. The Indian Creek fire between us and Cascade Locks seems to be growing. So far the PCT is still open, but we will keep a close eye on the incident reports.
