Ride across the USA: Fri., 6/18/10 -- Sandpoint, ID to east of Heron -- 43 mi. -- 505 total

The beautiful Lake Pend Orielle (pronounced Pond Oray) ..... it was just one beautiful moment after another.
Another view of the Pend Orielle

I'm out of order but it was probably one of those instances where we take a picture on the east end of the state because we missed the sign on the west end.

Just a beautiful tree-lined ride. Kirk likes it better when there are openings that he can see out.

The Maharry men hard at work ..... both taking a nap!

J & H hauled us to Sandpoint and we began today's ride from there. Partially sunny, no rain so this is good. My day started @ 4:30 a.m. when Lena, Jessica & Laurie called to wish me a happy 65th birthday! The nuts thought it was 5:30 a.m. Had several calls & messages, the ride was around the Pend Orielle (Pond Oray) Lake and it was one of the most beautiful days we had. We camped next to the Adventure Cycling group so we had fun checking out their routine. Made a quick run to check out the Noxon bar as we stayed in that little village 11 years ago.

  1. Kirk, what happened to your windscreen? I noticed your bike had one when you started.
