Sand Point, ID to Thompson Falls, MT
Riding with Walt from Ohio, early in the ride. In the background is a huge lake formed by the glaciers.
Hereís me at the lake!
Overlooking a lake. It was completely still and quiet with a mirror-like quality.

Profile and statistics (absolute altitude is wrong). Another ìrecovery dayî Ö probably wouldíve been more of a recovery if I hadnít hammered all day with Rich ìSkiî Ö Average speed was pretty high today. Temperature spikes are probably from the bike baking in the sun during a rest stop!
