Oct 2nd - Fall Colors in the Pacific North West

It's definitely fall weather now. Cold and chilly unless you are going up hill in the sun. The views were grand again today will lots of open ridge-lines filled with fall colors. The trees are mostly evergreens but the ground cover on the mountain slopes have leaves which have turned to reds, browns and golds. The hillsides are painted with color.

Grizzly Peak and Wenatchee Pass had long views out to the many mountains. Is that Glacier Peak or Mt Baker? Raineer in the distance. All are beautiful. More views from Saddle gap, Cady pass, Wards pass, Dishpan gap and Indian pass. Lots of ups and downs again as you can guess from all these passes I climbed today.

Crossed the 2500 mile point and entered the Glacier Peak Wilderness. Saw Toad and Chipmunk hiking today. Toad told me of a camp spot near Kid Pond which is where I am camping tonight with a nice sunset over the mountains in the distance.
