Slept in, walked to Glacier Peak Cafe (instead of Glacier Peak), biscuits and gravy, then to the Mountain Loop Book Store & Coffee for quiet, non-hiking backpackless morning. Walked around town a bit. The Red Tavern was packed at 1:30 on a Tuesday, not a good sign. The lumber yard is the main industry and maybe the only one, so the town is crumbly around the edges. Headed back to motel and spent afternoon posting blogs and making arrangements for the end of our trip– rooms in Vancouver etc. picked up pizza for dinner (classic hiker meal) and went to bed early.
