Day 121: Walking The Bridge Of The Gods Into Washington

Started: Cascade Locks (2147.1)

Ended: Dirt Road (2172.4)

Total Miles: 25.3

Achievements: Cross the Bridge of the Gods, Washington

I was up at five, ready to go. I wanted the luxury of a real breakfast, so I had to wait until seven. I ate at the same place as Ian and I did the night before.

After sitting with an older couple who were curious about my hike, I was finally on the trail by eight.

The very first task was to cross the Bridge of the Gods into Washington. It was a strangely moving experience. I couldn’t believe I was finally entering Washington. It is the last phase of this hike. I’m almost done.

The first climb in Washington was bigger than anything in Oregon.

I’m now with a new group of people. As I’ve not taken zeros and my speed is improving, I’m closing in on the back end of the bubble of hikers.
