Well, I gave the road walk a try for a couple days but decided to shelve it for now and hopefully take up the challenge some other year. I’m very keen on attempting exactly this type of journey, but I’ve had to admit to myself that right now the motivation just isn’t there. I guess it was difficult accepting the PCT hike ending so abruptly, but hopefully it won’t be long before I can get back there and complete that California section.

To everyone that was following along, thank you kindly for your interest and support! For the heck of it I’m adding several pictures I took during the road walk miles. Thanks again and I’m looking forward to future journeys! Max

This emphatic sign makes me think that “pedestrian friendly” may still be aspirational for Coeur d’Alene, ha!
