Day 39 – back on trail! Part A

We are back!!! We are sitting back at Hikertown (where we got off trail on the 20th to begin our break) right now waiting for the sun to cool off before getting back on trail. Papa Romero dropped us off this afternoon and we were able to meet back up with some of our trail family – Canary and Mellow! We were really surprised how many hikers came through this afternoon. More than 20! This is the most hikers we have seen in one spot. We knew we would be hitting more crowds by taking so much time off, but it was worth the extended stay in Seattle. The train ride was beautiful and we had hoped to take the train back, but a derailment canceled the trips we needed and instead we flew to LA where we spent  some time with Papa.

We feel very fortunate to have such great friends in Seattle who opened their home to us for a week. We saw the Xx show, played tourist and ate a bunch. Rob managed to put a lot of weight back on which is a good thing. It feels good to be back on trail and reunited with my stinky shoes that I haven’t worn since leaving. We will see how far we go tonight night hiking, but one thing I know for certain is that we will be sleeping under the stars 😊❤️.  Welcome back to the blog…stay tuned!
