Wednesday: (04/13) I hiked on through nice country (more trees).

I met “Half Fast”, an older hiker like me, from Portland, Oregon at Golden Oak Spring. Notice the nice green water. Actually, the water from the pipe trickling into the trough was nice.

Today was mostly a hike through a wind farm. No wonder it’s so windy today. They have a good crop.

Of course part of the hike was through a burnt area. Actually a lot of beautiful trail today.

Wind strong gusty all day. Little sun. Lots of trees down across the trail. Cold gusty drizzle evening. I was trying to make it over the crest but stopped just short because the wind was approaching from that side of the mountain and was bad enough where I was. Just as it was getting dark I stopped at a flat spot, MM598,  after wading through wet grass and plants for over three miles coming up the mountain. 20 miles today.
