Mile 2571.9 to 2588.8 for 16.9 miles with an elevation increase of 4488 and decrease of 1797. Plus 2 non PCT miles to the Stehekin Bakery. We conversed with a tourist interested in our journey and she had a profound insight. We have been people living in the woods and visiting cities for the past six months rather than people living in cities who occasionally visit the woods. This is why we feel so out of place when we go into towns to resupply. Camped by Bridge Creek at an elevation of 4287 feet. After getting breakfast at the bakery we caught the shuttle to High Bridge with at least 20 other hikers. We were on the trail at 10:30 and into camp at 6:00. The sun teased us early on then disappeared with the remainder of the day overcast and cold. The rain we experienced in Stehekin was snow only a couple thousand feet above. We decided to camp at as low an elevation as reasonably possible since the temperatures were so cold and we preferred to sleep on dirt rather than snow if possible. Most of the other hikers went on up to Rainy Pass for the night (688 feet above where we camped). Trail quality was good in the National Park and immediately deteriorated when we crossed into the National Forest. This was a tough day for Jerry. He struggled with a heavier pack after adding about 5 additional pounds to his pack when we resupplied in Seattle (warmer sleeping bag, extra clothing and fuel).
