Day 49 - An Easy Day. Only a 13 Mile Climb. Piece of Cake.: Republic, WA to Tonasket, WA

Today was an Easy Button day. Even though we had a 13 mile climb for starters (which we did in just a little over two hours), the rest of the ride was mostly downhill into our destination of Tonasket, WA. We're staying in a nice little motel with an adjacent laundry mat and C-Store. Everything one would ever need right here at our fingertips.
Tomorrow will be essentially a rest day as we'll only go 30 miles through the valley. Then we hit the passes again. Two down, three to go. Our confidence is pretty high. The toughest remaining day will be a two pass/76 mile/no services day. That's okay. We're tuffed up and ready for anything coming down the road. Adapt. Improvise. Overcome.

At the summit. 13 miles. Just two hours to climb.

Snack break scenery.

Hard to see, but that's a range of snow capped mtns in the distance.
