The Enchantments trail is a 30km point-to-point in the Central Cascades, near Leavenworth, Washington. A trail like this is likely better to experience over a few days, but we didn't want to try our luck at the lottery to get an overnight pass. So, we decided that running the route straight through would have to do. Also, we're trail runners, this is what we do.
After a sleepless night, for embarrassing reasons of my own, the alarm went off at 4:45am. We had to get to Snow Lakes trailhead to meet our shuttle driver who would take us to the start at Stuart Lake. From there we set off on our adventure.
