Miles Today: 15.0
Mile Marker: Mountain Harbour Hostel 408.7
The hostel I stayed at last night was voted the best breakfast on the trail last year. It is $12 for all you can eat. I now know why. I was picturing a hotel style buffet spread of scrambled eggs, bacon, and pancakes. What I got was an immaculate spread of gourmet breakfast foods. Perfectly presented fruit plates, perogies, beautiful cream puff pastries, French toast made from French bread, sausage polenta, made from scratch biscuits and gravy, some sort of poached egg dish, and about 10 other things I can't remember but still ate. Breakfast was at 8 and checkout was at 10. I took that full time after breakfast to recover before getting back to the trail.
The rest of the day was pretty uneventful. The climb back out wasn't too bad, for which my full stomach was grateful. There was a cool waterfall and one lookout, but the rest of the day was spent in the woods. The green tunnel effect gets stronger every day. I did cross over the 400 mile marker today, so that was kind of cool.
