August 31, 2104: Ollalie Lake
Journal Entry: August 31, 2014. PCT miles 2035 - 2054. 18.5 miles. Ollalie Lake
"Woke at 4:45 am, still raining. Again @ 6:00am to pee, this time no rain, yet more rain again from 6:30-7:30am. Finally got up at 8:00 am to cloudy skies. Made coffee and oatmeal, then Eeyore came by at about 9:00 am. We chatted a bit and leap-frogged all day. Finally sun around 2:00 pm. Jefferson Park was lovely. A 7,000 ft. pass came next and an actual snow crossing that I botched. Irritated by some day hikers commenting on my lack of a jacket, I scurried down the north side shale + hurt my ankle. Grrr! Found a sunny spot to yard-sale all my wet shit-- dried in about 45 minutes. Was given a garden tomato by a stranger. The miles came slow today + my feet hurt like hell. Word of Blox, Pigpen + Polar Bear a day behind but no Paul Bunyon sightings. Tonight: Beer at Ollalie Lake. No rain = happier spirits, but I am tired."
