Day 130 Sun

Day 130
September 27
19 miles
PCT mile 2528.5

I awoke to rain drops falling on my tent this morning, I groaned, "Not another day of this." Then snuggled deeper into my sleeping bag for warmth. Eventually I could hear voices gathering around the campfire, the others were stirring, I guess it's time for me to do the same. I unzipped my tent and rainfly to start my morning coffee, and much to my surprise I was greeted with blue sky!!! The rain drops I was hearing was only from the trees I had slept below, shedding their water from the previous days rain. I smiled and yelled out, "Blue sky! It's going to be a glorious day."

And that it was, I had a beautiful day of hiking with some magnificent views and scenery:

The first half of the day we were climbing through Glacier Peak National Forest which was more exposed, then we dropped down into this lush green forest, which was so green it was magical:

Unfortunately pictures do no justice

Broken Bridge

New Bridge

More bridges

Another broken bridge

All of our moods were uplifted from yesterday's rain. We were all giddy with happiness and grateful for the sunny day and the beauty the PCT has laid out for us today. I'm praying for at least one more day of sun tomorrow.
