Day 41: Zero Day in Leavenworth

Miles Hiked = 0

Leavenworth is a cute little Bavarian-themed town on the east side of the Washington Cascades. After Greg picked us up yesterday, we drove into town, had lunch together and then Sydney and I checked into our hotel .


The rest of the afternoon was spent doing laundry, taking showers and organizing our food resupply that we had picked up at Stevens Pass. Greg gave us a nice bottle of wine. Of course we enjoyed it with a large pizza for dinner. Thanks Greg!

What a treat!

Our zero day was quite leisurely. It was nice not to have to get up at the crack of dawn. We had breakfast across the street at a restaurant Greg recommended. The Leavenworth business district is not that large and is very touristy so we strolled through town and checked out the sights. Sydney had been here before but this was my first visit. We stopped at the local gear shop and picked a few small items. By then it was lunchtime – a stop at the local craft brewery for lunch and hydration was a requirement. Later in the afternoon we visited the local grocery store for a few food items that we had not mailed – things like flour tortillas, snicker bars, cookies, chips. A very typical zero day. Zero days also give me an opportunity to post some blogs on the hike which require Wi-Fi – usually I’m seven to ten days behind.

The next morning Greg picked us up at 6:30am and drove us back to Stevens Pass. Thanks Greg!

Thanks for following!
