Hiking 1:00:00  2.8 mi (21:26 / mi)
My Stuart this weekend. Stuart is the 2nd highest non-volcanic peak in WA, making it the 6th highest overall, behind Bonanza but ahead of St Helens. Traffic was awful heading over the pass. Left home around 6pm and made it to the trailhead around 9p. We decided to head up at least to Long’s pass for the night. Hiking in the dark was an experience to say the least. Not bad, but I did miss having the views, and a stronger headlamp would have come in handy.
Stars were beautiful. The moon wasn’t very big, and the Milky Way was faintly visible. There also must have been a meteor shower going on, since I saw quite a few.
It was super windy on top of the pass though, which meant waking up several times throughout the night with the tent blowing in.
