On the third day of our trip, we slept in and dawdled packing up. We even had TWO cups of coffee. I experimented this trip bringing powdered milk to put in tea and coffee. It was a success! It was lovely to have hot coffee on the cold mornings. There was a chair carved out of a stump at the site and we took a picture of it before we left.
We hiked nine km this day (Sunday). Most of this was in beautiful tall forest broken up from time to time by small streams, often with crude bridges across.
On our way we met a guy who was coming up--on his way to Avalanche campground which was a whole day behind us. He obviously hikes a lot faster than us! We didn't care, we were there for the experience, not to travel quickly.
