My solo hike on the Wonderland Trail (93 miles) around Mount Rainier in September 2006. Naturally I picked the only week in September that it rained the entire time. I planned for 10 days of hiking and camping at high elevations with lovely view. Instead I hiked 5 1/2 days and camped 5 nights at low elevations in the woods so I'd be protected from snow. It was a good trip anyway.
