9-17-17 Was vacationing over in the Methow Valley of northern Washington State and was fortunate to meet a PCT hiker who had just completed the trail and then hiked back down to Rainey Pass and hitched into Twisp, WA. We drove her down to Pateros where she could catch a series of buses back to Portland , OR. Very impressive young woman who completed the trail in a very high Sierra snow year. She said her name , NoShow, came from being unreliable…. but its hard to believe given her achievement : ) Also posted a new painting done in Eastern Washington last year — look under Steens – Sunset.
