We started off slow, grabbed a bite to eat at the cafe across the street and both ate amazing bacon egg and cheese sandwiches! After getting our fill, we set off. The day started with a 2 mile climb, it was on pavement so it wasn’t that bad. At mile 13, our route was diverted. A big washout took out a decent sized section of the road. We saw a cowboy and he explained to us that we would have to ford a river in order to get back on route. We listened to him and after a 45 minute detour through the same river twice, we were back on track. The next 20 miles flew by. We had a nice tailwind and were cruising at 21 mph. We stopped at Sparwood to resupply and then off again to Flathead Pass. It was a 6 mile climb on golf ball sized gravel and as we got to the top, rain started coming down. The ride down was quite intense as the road turned to a to river. After all the intensity we finally arrived to camp. A little damp but our spirits still intact. A little light on pictures today because of all the rain!!
