Day 161: Stehekin (Mile 2580)-South of Porcupine Creek (Mile 2600.5); 20.5 miles
We caught the morning bus out of Stehekin and were soon back on the Pacific Crest Trail, walking the final section. We passed vine maples changing colors, crossed rushing rivers, and walked through groves of large cedar trees.
Walking almost until dark, we caught glimpses of the sunset through gaps in the forest. It was strange to consider that these were our last few days on the trail. We had become accustomed to the incredible beauty and simplicity of life in the backcountry.
