Fires to my north. Desert to my south. Smoke in my nostrils. Wind in my face. Rough aggregate roads. Washington is a trial. I will persevere until Seattle.

After 66 miles I reached Bridgeport, a funky Mexican community with cool carved trees (enjoy these stock photos – in my pictures the sky is green). I finally reached Brewster where Naomi, the motel clerk made everything good. I met her three pugs, heard about her four daughters and the husband that got away. She gave me a discount. She nodded toward the window, “No one should have to pay to breath this.” Then she gave me a memorable response to my question.
