ZERO IN CASCADE LOCKS
PCT DAY 26: Friday July 21, 2017
Mile 2144.1 – 0 miles
Cascade Locks reminds me of some of the smaller Alaskan towns. Sort of a frontier town that time has forgotten. Arriving as I did on the historic Columbian Highway made me wonder what this town must have been like before the behemoth of Highway 30 was built over it. Set on the mighty Columbia River it really is a grand setting that deserves time and a slower pace to explore.
My priorities for today were simple, pick up my resupply from the Post Office and then put my feet up and do as little as possible. And that is exactly what I did.
While at the Post Office I met two other hikers whose names I can’t remember. One Hammer and I met before at Shelter Cove and a southbounder coming out of Washington. He is the first southbound hiker, who has hiked in Washington, that I’ve met on trail. He assured me that there is little snow likely in Washington. That is great news. I’m excited to head off tomorrow.
