PNT day 59 - Port Townsend

It should be my last visit to a post office on this trip. Slowly I made my way up the stairs of the historical building in downtown Port Townsend. Post offices kind of look the same all over the US. I loved being in one! Despite one very…

A few miles here and there... The campsite I had chosen was actually great and the traffic noise from nearby State Route 20 didn't bother me much. With less than a couple of miles to hike to Deception Pass bridge and the Pick up point there…

Bay View State Park (937.1) to John Tursi Trail Camp (962.5) Approx. 20 miles Again there was no way to sleep in as I shared the campsite with Hummingbird and Rip. So I got up and hiked early again thinking it was an advantage to use the cold…

Lily Lake Camp (922.0) to Bay View State Park (937.1) 15.1 miles The group was active very early and so I ended up starting hiking before 7 am. But it was good as we were all heading towards the famous bakery of Bow. The trail went downhill…

Sketchy Camp (910.4) to Lily Lake Camp (922.0) 11.6 miles Although my chosen campsite was a bit creepy I had a good nights sleep and didn't want to leave my cozy bag when my watch said it's time to do so. I had no more breakfast stuff and…

Hennagan Pass Camp (777.0) to Swift Creek Trail Camp (798.2) 8 miles hiking, rest hitching Last night I had tried to pick a good campsite for sunrise on the pass. Why did I worry at all? I woke up because it was surprisingly warm and I needed…
