September 3, 2013

Started up the North Fork Sauk trail late in the day -- about 6pm. We had a late morning flight arrival in Seattle, followed by obtaining groceries, fuel, misc items and stopping at the Forest Service Station in Darrington.

The forecast was not good--lots of rain and thunderstorms.
