Well then.

Today was my last day on the trail. The morning consisted of a mainly downhill jaunt to the High Bridge Ranger Station where a bus, an old school bus, makes several trips a day to Stehekin.

The bus also made 2 stops, the first at spectacular 300 foot Rainbow Falls and the second at a local bakery. Yum! Brownies and milk for me.

Stehekin is a resort accessible only by foot, boat or seaplane. As opposed to immediately getting on the boat to Chelan I decide to stay a night to decompress. It's a beautiful area.

Tomorrow, back to reality. With a 1,984 mile hike and this 564 mile hike, it leaves 82 miles to Canada. Maybe next year or maybe when I'm 70. What's the rush?
