Home for the night
Steve directs me to a spot in the grass next to a grey, weathered wood shed, once a little shower house, he says, now the apparent home of bees.
I unload the TW for the quarter mile ride back into Pierce to find some dinner. I want something with backwoods character like the Avery Trading Post¹ but all I find open along the sleepy main street is the Pioneer Inn,² its recently renovated white walls, fluorescent lights and tile floor orthogonal to my hopes.
