Once again, the rain was gone by morning and we were met by blue skies. It was pretty chilly and we started off with our wind pants, mittens and windshirts.
We only had a few miles to do this morning and the terrain was pretty gentle…more of the rolling ups and downs that we have had the past few days. As we got closer to the road, we started to see the day hikers coming out.
We could see the road starting about two and a half miles before we got there. We always have a sense of urgency when we can see the road…as though if we don’t get there fast, we’ll miss the car which is destined to give us a hitch. Not very rational thinking, but it’s in the back of our minds.
When we got to the road at 9:30am, we only had to wait twenty minutes before we got a ride. The guy had driven by us, then turned around and picked us up. Yeah!
We got into town around 10:30am and luckily were able to get right into our motel rooms. We basically just set our stuff down and headed across the street to get breakfast. After a seven day stretch we are happy to be in town.
