To Colville

It was a short ride today from Kettle Falls to Colville. There's camping right in town at Stevens County Fairgrounds and the price is right, just $5/night, hot showers included. The city decided it was a good idea to cater to bicycle tourists a couple of years ago when a group of 300 stopped in with their full-support crew - they gave the city a $2000 donation on the day they left.

Our ponies are tied up to the corral:

No problem following this direction:

We went to bed early, as usual. A few hours later, we woke up to the sound of rain. Then the wind began to blow, really blow! The tent bent inwards when it gusted (up to 40 mph we heard the next day). For the next two hours we were awake, telling old camping and weather stories. The outside of the sleeping bag was wet and there was one little puddle in a corner of the tent.

Miles completed = 452
