Day 18: Metaline Falls

Wednesday July 31, 5.8mi/9.3km

Sullivan Lake campground (34.7alt/2631ft) to Metaline Falls (347.1/2077ft) (WA)

I packed up a dry tent (yay!), and started the couple hours of roadwalking into town.

It was a paved road the entire way, but very few cars, a nice quiet morning.

As I got closer to town, I picked up phone signal and made some calls and organized some logistics for the next section. Just before town was an old mill!

I arrived into Metaline Falls at 9:30am, and went straight to the Cafe for 2nd breakfast.

Mmmm… second breakfast. Milkshakes!

I went across the street to the Post office to get my new socks, and then checked into the Washington hotel at 11am. Tiffany was so nice, and let me check in early!

I spent the rest of the day eating and relaxing. I met a couple of other Thru-hikers, Ryan & Alison. And Emily arrived later in the afternoon! (I had last seen her in the bushwhack three days ago). It was a fun evening of socializing with all the hikers in the hotel’s lounge/living room. And tomorrow I’ve decided to take my first zero day of this trail!
