Wow, lots of nice high country to camp. I would suggest that. Even say, up on Chumstick Mountain- there is a spring on the road a few switchbacks from the top of Chumstick.
I live in Leavenworth, would never recommend camping low when there is so much nice stuff up high! This has occurred to me before when previously I read about camping in the valleys, commercial $$ camps etc. The good stuff is up high, and free!
But I am really enjoying your TR and will start my own WABDR soon.[/QUOTE]
That's one thing that we never did was camp on the trail up higher. I think that this was probably generally getting into town late leaving just enough time for dinner, gas, and finding a close camp.
Maybe we'll try to plan a bit different next time so that we can grab food a bit sooner, and then head out on the next leg for a few miles to find camp.
Like you said, FREE!!
ADVNCW, I look forward to reading your RR.
