Comments: Your Socks are Going to Get Wet! That’s the theme of this hike right now. First river passable because of bridge. Trails were pretty wet the whole time. At about 3,000 ft needed spikes for monorail. Very windy once past tree line. Pierce summit was protected by trees. Good place for lunch. Ridge trail from Pierce to Eisenhower was somewhat protected by trees. It was a slushy mess though. My feet were completely submerged in water and no way around it until we started climbing Eisenhower. Views were great on the way up. Small waterfalls running down trails. Wind was crazy at top. Felt like I could get blown off (fyi-winds were not predicted to be that strong). Could not stay up there for long but good some great pics of Washington. Did not attempt to continue down Edmands.But these are the facts. Hike 9 miles, 8 hours with many stops for outfit changes and eating.
