Stevens to Snoqualmie / by nigel grey

It's been a crazy 70 miles, lots of hills and talus covered ridges. About 19,000 feet elevation gained and 18,000 lost. We were surprisingly hungry this morning. 4 eggs, 2 English muffins, 4 bacon strips, 4 sausages, 2 fruit cups, 1 piece of cherry pie, 1 scoop of ice cream, 1 pitcher of water, and 2 coffees to top it off. 

Hitched into Leavenworth, bought new shoes, borrowed bikes, and went grocery shopping

There were so many mosquitoes and flys on this stretch. At some points it felt like we were starring in a blood-sucking horror movie. Pretty views though and some invigorating alpine lake swims! Thanks for all the comments, they definitely help keep the spirits high for what seems like a long journey ahead! We will be in White Pass in a few days. See you then.
