It was a short but grueling slog this morning; my legs felt like anvils and my feet throbbed. We only had a 500 foot climb to tackle, but it felt like a giant.
After reaching the road at Steven’s Pass, it took me about an hour to secure a ride into Leavenworth, 35ish miles to the east. There is a German festival going on here at the moment, so the town is swamped. The entire place is modeled after a Bavarian Village, a very cool novelty of a town. Tourists abound everywhere, but that doesn’t bother me in a town like this; tourists are what it was made for, no other reason, so you might as well go along with it.
The plan is to eat as much authentic German food as I can, look for shoes, and rest. Only 188 miles to go.
