Hiking and Knitting...but mostly hiking

 Due to cold fingers and exhaustion, very little knitting got done. I had planned for a light weight knitting project---lace trim. Size 2 bamboo needles and a little ball of cotton string. What I didn't plan for was a hike that was way above me fitness level.

I ventured out into the North Cascades by  myself for 3 days. The first day was the most difficult. I went 8 miles in, mostly uphill.  The second day I left my pack at my campsite and hiked up to Copper Ridge Lookout.  On the 3rd day I hiked out which took 4 1/2 hours but was mostly downhill.

This hike was so exhausting that once I stopped moving all I could do was lay down.
