Mile 2325.7 to 2347.3 for 21.6 miles with an elevation increase of 2782 and decrease of 3773. We were hiking at 8:00 and into camp at 4:00 which is in the Urich Shelter (built and maintained by a snowmobile club). It rained hard most of the night and was quite cold making it hard to get hiking. We were in clouds with a light mist most of the morning. It was interesting hiking above Crystal Mountain Ski Resort and seeing the results of last years fire. The trail was primarily on high ridges and shoulders. Heavy rains held off until 2 miles before camp and we got soaked. It was great to find a fire going in the shelter and dry our clothes. We met “Pink Panther” from the Netherlands complete with a pink panther outfit and pink trekking poles and “Moses”, who is from Switzerland. The shelter was packed with hikers. Jerry’s flatulence continues and he is now forewarning me so I can make sure to be far enough away. The trail was supersaturated and it only took a few minutes of rain to have standing water on it. At least our feet will start out dry tomorrow. It was hard putting on our wet socks and wet shoes this morning. Our feet were very cold for hours. We heard firsthand that two hikers spent the night in the outhouses at Chinook Pass.
