Second Day

This was a day for dirt roads which we were not supposed to do at all. We probably did around 30 miles of dirt that comprised almost all the climbing. I learned the benefits of putting ice and water in my Camel Back from Jerry and Rick.

I also learned that without a GPS I would be laying in an alfalfa field somewhere. Thank God both Rick and Jerry have GPS so we know where we are and how to get back on route when we make detours.

The Rivendell experienced its' first flat today. Looked like a goat head thorn that we ran through yesterday.

Tonight we are staying at the Downata Hot Springs camping resort tonight. The hamburg and root beer float here at the snack bar were awesome. The lady at the snack counter also gave me free refills!!

Rick at the top of one of the dirt road climbs.  We were thankful for some clouds and a few sprinkles though it still got to 94 degrees today.







Me at the Idaho border.
