Oregon Day 20

My current leg of the PCT is now officially over. I hiked out the 13 miles without trouble, though it took quite a bit longer than I would have thought. There wasn't much in the way of views today, just lots of trees. When I got to Wind River Rd, walked into Stabler to check out the country store. Rather small store, got a couple of drinks. Then walked down the road trying to hitch. After about 45 minutes, got picked up and taken to Hood River. Since I now have 4 days to kill, wanted to rent a car. There is an Enterprise Rent a Car in Hood River. When I walked there, they were out of cars. I walked back to the other side of town to the Greyhound station. I got there at 4:30 and the next bus to Portland was at 5. Lucky. Once in Portland, took the light rail out to the airport. Rented a car and am now set to be a "real" tourist.

Well I made my goal for this segment of the PCT. After not hiking for 2 months, I wasn't sure how I would handle hiking big miles, but it went surprisingly well. I ended up finishing 3 days earlier than expected. Hopefully I can get back out at the end of September, but we'll see.
