Day 130 Snoqualmie

22 August
I slept well and I was up early.
Stove lit and tea on the go
My tent was wet due yo the dew oh well I stripped it back and packed up drank my tea and I was ready to go
But ist casualty ive lost my sunglasses I think I may of knocked them off my head pushing through dome bushes. I went and retraced my steps but couldn’t see them . perhaps they may be in my pack?
I should of  looked harder. …
I set off on the trail it was damp due to the dew but soon the trail became wide .I pushed on  I was mainly in the forest but nice mature woods.soon I had to  ford my first Creek not that deep and had nice stones do my feet remained dry. OMG  so many fruit bushes I must ignore them well just a few berries lol .slows the hiking down
I pushed on and on another creek to ford .it was a lovely day not too hot
And the miles were falling I then came to a spring. I topped up my water and cameled up too
As I pushed on another range of mountains begin to appear
Not sure what they are but i’m sure ill get close soon lol
Ping okay breakfast/ lunch.
I stopped and picked half s cup of huckleberries added my cereal then devoured all the remaining snacks in my food bag
I pushed on climbing climbing I then came to a small water fall but extremely beautiful .I ended up climbing up and over it where I came to another beautiful lake.i sat by the lake for a few minutes before continuing on..A sign 7 miles to go fantastic. As I was reading s couple walked by we chatted for a while as we walked they gave me a couple of candy bars  which were greatly received. I then met another 4 day hikers we chatted for s while two are visiting the UK  shortly I recommended Cornwall which was on their list
Soon I could see the ski lifts I must be close .whoop at last I van see the town but as I approach the sky’s getting darker and darker mmmm
I begin to drop down into town one on flat ground and then  asked  for directions  for the  Chevron  .The sky  is  beginning to get  dark   not a good  sign. I walked along the road heading toward the Chevron .
The  Owner sends me towards the back of the store  and  into an old  “Fridge” which was filled with  resupply boxes . I searched  for  mine  YES   my stuff was here my food and shoes.
I carried my gear  outside and began to  sort  out my food  Then the heavens opened
Omg  I was  completely unprepared  several hikers pass by,  they all seem to be are staying at the motel   its a bit expensive but its my option plus I can charge all my devices. But im dangerously low on money

I decide if they accept my card I will stay.Yes   So I book in its a huge room .
I put on coffee then walk back to the store for some beer and bits.
I enjoy a relaxing shower wash my clothes  then relax with a hot coffee  and watch some tv.catch up on my blog and other chores and enjoy an ale or two :0)
