August 10: Angie’s Solo Wonderland Trail East Run

After camping outside the park near Ohanepecosh, Andrew dropped me off at the Box Canyon TH at 6:30am. I started my run, and Andrew made his way to Enumclaw for his 7:30am meeting.

I was making great time, so I decided to run up to Banshee Peak. Trying to stay on schedule, I ran to the summit, took a selfie, said hello to a man sitting at the top, and started my way down. The man proceeded to lecture me on how I should spend more time at the top and “slow down and take it all in”. It never seizes to amaze me how older men tend to lecture me on the trail, ONLY when I am by myself. Why someone thinks they can tell me how to spend my leisure time is beyond me. With a quick and friendly “Nope, I’m on a schedule, TacoTime awaits!”, I ran down, hearing his voice trailing off “that’s not a good enough reason”. People, YOU DO YOU.

I descended Panhandle Gap, took a break at Summerland to fill up on water, and booked it through the forest. The connector trail to White River was closed, so I walked the road to the White River campsite. Andrew met me there with TacoTime!

Here’s a diary of all the food I ate on the trail day:
