Day 44 - Same Old, Same Old - Spectacular Scenery and Great Riding: Clark Fork, ID to Priest River, ID

Yet another great weather and riding day. As we finished at about 4 p.m., we noticed that the time/temp signs all said 93 degrees. We were both surprised it was that hot. We had been riding a lot on shaded roads. That, and the low humidity made for a great day.
We had a long, leisurely lunch in Sand Point, ID. Sand Point is on the shores of Lake Pend Oreille. A lovely resort/ski town. Lots of bikes and shops - and lunch was delicious. We had mostly great roads - even a 5.5 mile bike path - today. Took our time and had a great experience. Arrived at our destination with plenty of gas left in our tanks. This was our fourth consecutive day of riding after our little layoff. Our bodies have quickly adjusted to the everyday routine of riding and our stamina has come back strong. We'll be ready for the mountains that are just around the corner.

Beautiful Lake Pend Oreille, ID.

At lunch in Sand Point, ID we broke out our last ACA map. We started out with a dozen or so. Just 462 miles (and 5 mtn passes) between us and Anacortes, WA, our end destination.

Us and pretty flowers in the happening little town of Sand Point, ID.

A wild flower bordered bike path along the lake shore. That water really looked good. I wanted to skinny dip. Barney and Martha said 'no'.

A friendly enough seeming bear.
