With the weather behaving better (details), we could concentrate on climbing hills as part of our 80 mile longest day! An excellent spaghetti lunch and a bit of sight-seeing in Blue Rapids helped break up the day. The weather had one last nasty surprise waiting for us after a pizza party in Centralia - a nasty thunderstorm that chased us indoors and dumped 4 inches of rain on our gear.
