Why bother taking it to Manning Park? I am sure they have lots of watermelon
at the lodge. Just eat it in Stehekin and enjoy the last stretch to the
border--one of the most beautiful sections of any Washington state hike (See
an account of my 1995 trip at
<http://staff.washington.edu/griffin/pct.html>.) Can't believe it's been
almost seven years.

PS--The name of the town is Wenatchee.
