A fun day of rest with new friends. I woke to the smiling and inquisitivefaces of three deer staring me in the face. I don't know, maybe they weretelling me to slow down and enjoy the scenery. For a multitude of reasons,including the 14 days o had to take off, i have certainly felt the need to'push' on and recover some miles.
Taking my deer friends to heart i opted to just take the entire day off.The weather was gray and windy with a threat of rain, so they really did nothave to work very hard at convincing to sit out the day. Next thing I knowmy new friend Nils comes down and invites me to breakfast, which I gladlyaccepted.
This is one really nice thing about campgrounds is you get to meet people.Luckily this is a wonderful NPS primitive site that only charges $5 pernight.
I joined Nils and Heather for breakfast, a little Canadian fruit dish andlots of fresh coffee. We then piled into their cleaning van, headed intotown and checked out the local sights. Important things like the libraryand grocery store.
Nils was looking for a book store sp we went in search of the mall. It feltsurreal to be driving around in a car let alone walking through a mall. Nobookstore, but a bottle of Guineas and then a movie completed a gun andeclectic day on the trail.
Meeting new people and getting to spend some time with them is one of thepurest joys of traveling. Now to go put some miles in....Sent from my Windows Phone
