We stayed at the hiker hostel described in the book Just Passing Through by Winton Porter. I read the book last year. It describes perfectly the hiking community that congregates here, both the hikers and the workers.
We were two of three women (the rest being men) in the hostel last night–lots of snoring going on. They provided an evening meal last night (grilled pork chops, baked beans and salad), this morning was sweet rolls and coffee. I had a little debbie swiss roll and Dragonfly ate our usual granola. We will probably buy a couple of bananas before we leave.
Sending some stuff back and then on up the trail we go.
