Day 76 Leavenworth, WA to Skykomish, WA 51.0 miles Total 3,756.1 mi
The Enzian Inn in Leavenworth was above average in all respects. When Steve learned that they offered breakfast, he signed up for the 7:30 seating and decided to sleep in. Since he has not had a down day, this turned out to be a great idea. He got a good night's sleep and filled up on a delicious breakfast. They had an omelette station as well as fruit, meat, cinnamon rolls, pastries, muesli, and special yeast waffles with an amazing berry sauce.
He was off at 8:10am for the last challenging mountain pass climb of the ride. Stevens Pass was an elevation gain of 3,331 feet. He stopped at the rest area after about 17 mies. After that, he just climbed.
I was waiting for him at the top of the pass when he came riding up at about 12:40.
