14th September

17.5 miles

Bushcamp (2542.2) to East Glacier (2559.7)

The hike to East glacier was fairly easy and the miles went quick. The trail spent most of its time hiding in the thick growth of bushes that seem to happen at the end of season. When the views did present themselves it revolved around the huge Glacier Mountains and the quick changing colours of the aspen trees. Already they are deep yellow. Winter is coming.

The town of East Glacier was surprisingly busy. Hotels were full. Hostels were filling quick. I’ll be in town for several days of rest and relaxation. Some very special friends are joining me to hike to Canada. Stay tuned to find out who! It’s very exciting.

I did find a small cabin and commenced the important job of resting. And getting those town chores done. Rest is rarely ever rest while thru hiking.

    Hi Brad
    I agree with the previous comment. It has been a real adventure following your adventure. So close now. You have weathered many trials but you have soldiered on – a very big congratulations. Just need the weather to be not too unkind for the next week or so. What will you do to celebrate? Look after yourself. So glad you have made it.

      Thanks Phil, hopefully the weather is good but I suspect it will be difficult. Stay tuned for the celebration

      Yes you do, the park pass might have given it away! Hope things are good for you both

    I know your special friends are the grizzlies you made friends with along the way. Thanks for the adventure even though I had to participate from the computer chair.

      Your welcome Margaret, just a little bit longer to go, of the weather plays along.

    Hey, man. It has been an absolute blast following your journal! It is one of the best to blogs to follow if not the best. Congrats on your final steps to Canada and that you get to do it with friends. What an amazing adventure you have been on. I’ve been subscribed since you set set foot on the PCT.
