Our Penultimate Day - The BIG RIDE is Almost Over: Marblemount, WA to Sedro-Woolley, WA

Another beautiful weather and scenery day.  The landscape has, again, completely changed.  Now it's lush greenery and miles and miles of blackberry bushes along the roadway.

We rode a 'tunnel of trees' road this morning for about 20 miles.  Very light traffic, good surface, flat terrain.  Doesn't get much better.

We only did 45 miles today.  Could have easily done another 30 into Anacortes, WA as it turns out, but we hated to put two 75 miles days back to back.  Now, we'll sleep a little later and cruise on into Anacortes by lunchtime tomorrow.  I'm looking forward to meeting my contact at the Skagit Bike Shop in Anacortes.  We'll also have to find out if Barney's box has yet been delivered by UPS.  We expect to spend at least a day or two in Anacortes.  We'll probably take a ferry over to one of the San Juan Islands and do an unloaded day ride.  We'll hardly know how to ride Barney w/o him lugging 50 lbs of stuff.  It'll still be fun to try.

Today's lone picture, made, you guessed it, in Concrete, WA. I presume those silos once contained tons and tons of Portland cement mix.
