Day 73(August 9th 2016) McKenzie Bridge – Eugene OR; 55 miles

Today was an easy and beautiful day in the Pacific Northwest. With the clouds still hovering in the mountains it was very magical and beautiful. We made pretty good timing because it was mostly downhill.

We left camp late because of the low mileage and general fatigue. It was also raining so it was a messy camp breakdown. It was eerie how our second to last day was so comparable to our second day of the trip in Virginia. Cold and rainy. But much different emotional feelings.

We’re staying in a house tonight in Eugene. It’s beautiful and a real treat for us so close to the completion of the trip. We spent some time in the city and got a delicious meal.

Tomorrow is our last day! It’s a long one, but my parents will be at the finish line and I have a feeling it will be a super emotional end to a great journey.
