Mile 2112 to mile 3.3 of 15 along the Eagle Creek Alternate, 16.7 miles
Cost: camped, free
We slept in until 9am! Then KC and Howard went hunter-gathering for breakfast while I showered. They found a bakery and brought back some delicious cakes.
We were back on the trail at 1pm, a little too late for me to try and make it all the way to Cascade Locks today (Fri), but I gave Howard my drivers license to pick up my packages from the Post office (bounce box and food resupply), so hopefully they’ll let him pick them up.
It was a fairly easy trail until we started down the Eagle Creek alternate trail, the first few miles were rocky and steep and my knees and ankles were screaming at me but then it evened out.
At 8pm we stopped at the first camp spot we came to not knowing if there would be anywhere else to camp. We set up our mats and sleeping bags to cowboy camp, I’m going to get up really early tomorrow morning to get to Cascade Locks as early as possible to have breakfast with Howard.
