Looking back at the Sisters

Oregon Day 12

I made it to a town today. The town of Sisters, Oregon. I headed out at 6:30 and the first few miles were very, very tough. Again it was over very big lava rocks. It made the going very slow. There were no leg problems and very, very few mosquitoes. There were some nice views of Mt Washington, but it was blocked most of the times. There were some very nice over the shoulder views of the Sisters, also. I made it to Highway 20 at about 1:45. The option then was to hitch to either Sisters or Bend. I had sent a package to Sisters, though all the thrus I had met told me that Bend was a better option for a zero. So I was undecided.

I hitched a ride after about 20 minutes. The guy was only going as far as Sisters, so that settled it for me. After downing an ice cold fountain drink (yum), I picked up my package at the post office then tried to hitch to Bend. I was just on the outskirts of Sisters and got quite a few funny looks from passerbys. So I decided to just stay in Sisters. I was able to score the special PCT hiker rate at the Sisters Inn so I jumped on it.

The room is huge, there even is a back yard. It's got it all, microwave, tv, fridge. I took a much needed shower, and enjoyed just relaxing. After being on the trail for 12 days, it was nice to be back into all the comforts of civilization.
