Hot Springs Trail Day 39

We were walking by 5:20 am, Heather seems to have taken a liking to our
upcoming town although she probably wouldn't have gotten up quite so early
if it wasn't for me. We had an easy 9 miles into town and we cruised
downhill on dirt roads, past old mining relics and buildings, a bit of
cross country and then rolled into Eureka which has exploited it's highway
50 "loneliest town in America" quite impressively. Heather had read that
the motels fill up sometimes and fortunately yesterday we made a
reservation as when we walked into town the cheap motels were all full.
Phew. We had a good breakfast and were expecting to have to wait for a
motel room but one had just been cleaned and we were good to go.

Town was small but the new supermarket was 1.4 miles out of town which was
a bit painful but we sucked it up and did it after lunch to get all of our
town chores out of the way. Otherwise, we did the usual. Ate, relaxed,
watched some TV, enjoyed a few beers and ate gas station hot dogs for
