[pct-l] Big Storm of 2004

Oh so true! The year I went over Fire Creek Pass, it was solid mist and
clouds with horizontal rain. I was doing good to see trail twenty feet
ahead.  Three years later Hart's Pass, it was the same thing. The same time
next year it was absolutely gorgeous.

Well, the PNW is well known for rain. Long-term residents of Oregon and
Washington can be recognized by the webs between their toes.

It's still coming down, too.  Rain predicted for pretty much the entire

I feel sorry for all the thru-hikers out there.  Not so much because
they have to walk in the rain (hey, at least they're not stuck in an
office!), but because as a Northwest native I'm proud of my Cascade
mountains and it's just tragic when people walk through them and see
nothing but fog.  We have some of the best scenery of the whole trail up
here, damn it, but no one ever believes me.  <grin>
