Started hiking about 5:15 am, with the plan, if all went well, to hike thru the park all the way to Stehekin. It would make it almost a 17 mile day. I had miscalculated mileage when I picked a day we would camp in the park so this was the next best plan.
The day went by really fast , and so did the miles. Before we knew it we were at the half way point. A few hikers passed us hurrying to the noon bus. I originally aimed for the 6 pm bus but quickly realized we could make the 3 pm bus, and we did. Wylie was a trooper all day, never seemed to tire, though it was his second longest day ever.
The bus driver was cool, didnt charge me for Wylie.
And he took us to see Rainbow falls.
At the bakery, I had Tanner pick me up some brownies, since Pathfinder bought all the last cinnamon rolls. Ill probably go back tomorrow and try again to get some rolls.
Once in Stehekin I bought Wylie some cheese and hot dogs.. he wolfed down three dogs! Then we got a burger and salad, with fries,it was a big dinner and good!!
Camped for the night, no wifi, but shower and laundry tomorrow!

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.
