Which way to Canada?

Stilts - PCT - Aug 7, 2008 - Washington!
Steve reached Cascade Locks fairly early in the afternoon yesterday and the gang was all there: Sweetfish, Truant, Hearsay, Sheik Olivier, Bido and others. Steve said about 10 thru-hikers were all in town. I didn't get all of their names. Steve managed to get a ride to Portland, OR so he could go to the REI there. He bought a new water filter cartridge and socks. He returned to Cascade Locks, where he spent last night in a motel. His plan is to take a leisurely start this morning and not cover too many miles. However, he's only carrying 5 days of supplies to get him 150 miles to White Pass, so he can't afford to be too slow.Steve's hike today looks quite steep out of the Columbia River Valley- more than 3,000 feet up. I haven't read any other hiker journals from WA, so I don't know what the snow conditions are. I do know that WA has a reputation for being beautiful.Steve officially has a plane ticket back to Maine- he will fly out of Seattle on Monday, September 8th. I think he will finish the PCT well before that time, but he wants to spend some time with friends. He lived in Seattle for a year about 7 years ago, so he knows the area.
