Awoke to a bright red sunrise. Hiked the 12 1/2 easy miles to the border monument in a relatively short amount of time. Annoying 8-mile hike into Canada to get to Manning Provincial Park where Jesse and Lissa drove by just as Jen and I were emerging from the woods. Said goodbye to Jen and headed for a diner in Hope, then Bellingham.
Food never tasted so good! Fantastic burger at the diner, but I couldn’t finish it all. OF COURSE, I got it to go as I can’t bring myself to throw even a crumb of food away. Got stuck in a huge traffic jam on trans-Canada highway: welcome back to civilization! Look forward to tomorrow when I can give my poor feet a break. Now starts a long week of calorie replacement, beginning with this tasty ice cream.
