To Cusick

First thing this morning, Linda brought Dick a thermos of hot coffee and the newspaper. I would definitely recommend Cedar Park RV & Campground to any cyclist or RVer out there.

The bridge crossing the Pend Oreille River from Ione to Leclerc Rd, a much quieter less-developed alternate to Hwy 20 on the other side of the river.

At a bend in the road, we came across a Stonehenge-like grouping of huge basalt columns. Hey, Boyd from Republic, check it out!

The rain started in the afternoon and it was sooo cold. We decided to camp at the county fairgrounds in Cusick. Across the street was a little mom-and-pop grocery store where the smell of grease was in the air and everyone who came in seemed to know each other. We had hot chocolate to warm up; Dick walked the aisles of the store looking for inspiration. He finally settled on a small pan of lasagna from the deli - what a great idea! - meaty, cheesy, delicious.

Miles completed = 525
