There’s really not a ton to say about today. We saw a few little frogs in the trail which was neat, and we listened to hours of our history audiobook, but mostly we just walked along a dirt road in the woods, catching tiny glimpses of Mount Adams once or twice through the trees and waving or exchanging greetings with multiple carloads of hitching hikers as they passed.
