What a day to ride!!

T – We thought that seeing as we were a little ways out here, that we might do a loop around the mountains in the local area. The sky was crystal clear blue and no clouds in sight. So we cheerily packed up camp and picked a nice little narrow back road through to the town of Libby.

The road was amazing. Narrow and winding for kilometre after kilometer. It had bouncing sections of rough pavement, gravelled potholes and views forever.

We loved it. And on top of all this, it was climbing into the low 30 degree heat that we had been searching so long for. Bliss.

C – The riding today was superb. Quiet backroads with amazing scenery and very little traffic. Wildlife all around us! The weather… absolute perfect. No jumper. No thermals. Just sunshine and one happy, smiling, singing, loving life Chantelle.


T – We made a quick stop in Libby for some lunch supplies before stopping just out of town in some shady grassy area and made some yummy banana sandwiches. They tasted so good.

We then followed the twisting turning road up and over some tall mountains before the road curved southwards and followed a massive lake.

We followed the steep cliffs of this quiet wondrous road for several miles until we found a lovely little free camp right down by the lakeside.

We dipped our feet into the cool water and had a glass of red wine. Today was a great day of riding. More great weather is to follow apparently, we couldn’t be happier!

Tomorrow we head back towards Columbia Falls. Hoping our packages have arrived.
