Day 57 - Back to the Trail

We headed out early and bid a fond farewell to our home for the past 2 days.

Ben arranged us a ride with some friends he met at a coffee shop. They live full time in a Sprinter van owned by their employer, Native Eyewear.

We all fit!

It was a fun ride. 

We took some pictures at the trailhead and filmed a video for their company, hopefully it will make their website! 

The crew.

They seem to enjoy their work.

It felt good to be back in nature.

And I saw Nude Dude coming down the pass, he was ready for his trip into town.

I relaxed by a lake for a while and then headed back up the pass.

It was a gorgeous day.

And even though I hiked this pass just a few days before, the views were no less spectacular the second time around.

I saw this furry little critter grazing along the trail.

And hiked on into the setting sun.

I felt strong and hiked into the night, reaching the top of Glen Pass around 11 pm. It was so quiet up there. I hiked down a ways, stepping carefully on the snow laden path.

I found a flat spot to lay out my sleeping bag and called it a night, curious about the landscape that lay beneath the veil of darkness surrounding me.
