Gotta love Washington's western swamplands and their kamakazi divebombing mosquitos. Did some very similiar bushwacking to that a month ago up by Kendall peak, i could really do nothing but laugh at the situation even though it has to be the most painfully slow hiking I have done...looks like you guys endured it for much longer than I had to though.

I could tell you about the time on the trail up Shuksan where the bugs were so thick you could kill a hundred at a time if you stopped at all.....
Now THAT shit can make you fCKN crazy, holy shit. Kill and kill and they just. keep. buzzing. I got it once on the Hannegan Pass Trail in late summer...
That time I had a blister on my right foot, and was going to try to stop and duct tape it up real quick....ever see a guy run uphill with a full day pack in mountaineering boots?? All the while swatting...and swatting....
