August 21, 2011

Start: 1750
End: 1776

The miles today were pretty easy. So far since Ashland, things have been flat, or climb gently for no more than 1500 vertical feet. It has also been mostly forested and, therefore, the scenery is essentially unchanging. If variety is the spice of life, than this section is a baked potato without all the accoutrements. That is, until this afternoon...

An old friend made an appearance today: huckleberries! The bushes lined the trail for miles, and while not all bore ripe fruit, there were enough that did, and we snacked on them occasionally, picking as we walked. They were delicious! As another hiker said in a trail register, I might not make it to Washington because of all the huckleberries, but I'm OK with that.
