Deception

After each of us thinking the day through, we all came to the same conclusion. We would take the Deception Creek Trail in order to get into town with enough time to hitch before the skies opened up with rain. Passed lots of amazing fungi along the trail.

As Cuddles and Fun Size headed up hwy 2 to Stevens pass (in order to maintain continuous steps) I put out my thumb for a hitch. A car coming in the opposite direction had its blinker on and turned in next to me. Barbara, the sweetest angel, had turned around and come back for me. She gave me a ride all the way to Baring as we had a nice conversation about the pct and the town Leavenworth, where she lives.

I walked across the railroad tracks to the Dinsmores. Andrea and Jerry are the sweetest. I got a lower bunk, took a shower, laundry, zoned out on some movies for a while, hamburger and pie dinner across the street. Over 20 hikers here tonight, glad to be out of the rain. Surprise beer too!

T - 184 miles
