STEHEKIN and beyond!

Well Stehekin was awesome and we really needed the break. We made the morning bus and looked forward to the Bakery stop, we had not eaten dinner the night before due to our illness. We spent 50 dollars on baked goods, only through hikers can spend that kind of money on Cinnamon rolls and pie. Free camping, flushing toilets,showers,laundry, and wonderful people. We camped out for two days, layed around by the lake drank ice cold Vitamin water and ate cinnamon rolls. we contemplated our trip this far and felt obliged to take our time with the last few days of hiker freedom. We indulged in a bottle of wine for the final days of our hike, we had a wonderful platypus wine Bladder to keep it fresh for a few days.

We backpacked the last 89 miles like a weekender. we camped early every night, lounged by the campfire,drank hot chocolate and sipped on wine. The views from the Washington ridge line took our breath away and we felt like the luckiest people in the world. Here we are hiking in " GODS" country ( as all the Washingtonians call it). Two people in love, with nothing Else to do but hike, eat, rest, and feel lucky and free. the end of the trail brings bitter sweet feelings, we are glad to have accomplished our goal but sad to see it end. Our Canadian friends Eric and Bill Blakely Helped us celebrate our finish with Champagne and good company. We enjoyed Eric's Condo in Kelowna Canada, good food, and good friends. Our friend John Generously drove all the way from Colorado to pick us up and drive us back home, it was a good road trip. I can not say that our bodies did not ache from the change of hiking to sitting and our feet peeled and ached but we were glad to see our friend. We slept out side ever chance we got trying to ease our transition into society and living in a home with a bed and alas jobs. Well watch-out workforce hear we come.
