Thank you!!

I don’t want Hike-a-Thon to end, because I’ve had a pretty amazing month. 100 miles hiked (45 of them solo), 24,800 feet gained, $555 $695 raised for WTA, 5.5 lbs lost (without any sort of dietary cooperation from me) and countless endorphins savored.

Seriously, thank you.

Seriously, huge thanks to all you wonderful people who donated – you rock, all of y’alls!

I also owe thanks to:

  • my hiking partners (two-legged and four-legged), for inducing giggles and for waiting for me when I was slow
  • the weather, for only hitting me with a total of two drops of rain over the entire 100 miles
  • the Cascade mosquito population, for staying remarkably absent this month
  • last but definitely not least, JK, for on-trail snuggles and chauffering
  • Hike-a-Thon 01 Hike-a-Thon 02
    Hike-a-Thon 03 Hike-a-Thon 04
    Hike-a-Thon 05 I done caught me a Cascadian Snow Pig!
    Hike-a-Thon 07: Melakwa - Pratt Loop Hike-a-Thon 08: Wright Mountain
    Hike-a-Thon 09: Naches Peak Loop Hike-a-Thon 10: Sourdough Gap
    Hike-a-Thon 11: Margaret Lake and Mount Margaret Hike-a-Thon 12: Redmond Watershed Preserve

    And the shirt? It kind of fits. Sort of. As long as I suck it in.

    Congrats! Wonderful! Not doing much hiking this summer due to chronic foot problems rearing their ugliness, but great to get out in the Cascades this summer vicariously through your lovely blog.

    Thanks, guys! Jill, foot problems are the worst and tend to show up at the most inopportune times. :(
