We had talked about walking all the way to Lind, but decided to see how the day played out.. we were greeted at 3:30 am by the town dog, a bloodhound, barking his annoyance way too early..then about 5:30 am the road construction workers started showing up and setting up for their days work.. So off we went, back on trail again..
Long hot slog today. But Wylie wouldnt ride the cart till after 10miles.. we tried to put him on several times and he just whined.. but after the miles racked up, he was content to ride. It was so hot, with no shade except for under sage brush, when we got to the culverts under hwy 395, we stayed there several hours.. it was heaven! We loaded up again at 6, and headed the last couple of miles into Lind. Straight to the bar we went.. really friendly people, they even let me bring my cart and Wylie inside.. I had their taco special, and Chris had a burger.. it was great.. they said we could camp at the park a block away , so we did..Tomorrow we will hit up the small grocery before we head on to

The John Wayne Pioneer Trail is a 285 mile rail trail spanning the state of Washington, from the western slopes of the Cascade Mountains to the Idaho border. Designated a National Recreational Trail, it is enjoyed by hikers, horse riders, bikers, Boy Scouts, rail historians, scientists, and trail enthusiasts of all sorts. The trail highlights Washingtons diverse and scenic landscape, traveling through evergreen forests and dark tunnels, over high trestles and spectacular rivers, and across open farmland and high desert.
