|Indian Henry's Campground|
Kautz Creek is a tough hike. 5.7 miles to Indian Henry's Campground and a lovely view of Mt. Rainier, climbing all the way. I always hit a wall about 4 miles up where I'm not entirely sure I can finish or move another step. Some food, water and a knowledge that the end is so close keeps the tired legs going. Yesterday was a hot, muggy day with a fresh hatching of mosquitos to deal with (I was inhaling them as I was trying to eat), but it was amazingly beautiful. Last time we scared and treed a bear on the way down, but I am happy to report that there were no bear sightings this time. More pictures here.
