Sept 19 - Smoke up your nose
Hiked with the smell of smoke all day and smokey views. You knew the mountains were all around you but the smoke, Adams fire?, blocked the views. Adams and maybe Rainier or St Helen's should be coming onto view if I could see through the smoke. Lots of spider web clearing today. Looks like the road walk must have skipped a lot cause no one is on the trail near me and the log at a trail magic cache of candy and chips had notes of hikers who somehow jumped a day or two ahead of me. Crossed 2200 miles today and camping at mile 2222. Some neat lava fields and collapsed lava tunnels today.
