Olympic adventures

Photos of the Olympic Range from Hurricane Ridge
Yes, visitors are expected to stand and stare in awe.

Tuesday, Barbara Cook and I climbed the non-technical part of the trail to Mount Angeles ( 1780 meters, 10.5 kilometers) and met some mountain goats on the trail! Not having any noisemakers handy, we scrambled off trail and let them pass.

How not to leave a trail, reenacted
These are mountain goats
This is not.

Also not a goat, but a good idea for the next project!

Thursday and Friday,  the training plan steps up to a longer and higher climb to Boulder Lake in the Olympics.

During the rest day on Wednesday, the wonderful people who are supporting me here will join in for a dinner at Purple and for balcony tickets at a performance of Wicked! staged by a Broadway touring group. Next week, Virginia Tebo will lead a four day tour of the Cascades. The first day's hiking plan is a section of the Pacific Crest Trail!
