Republic to Tonasket 50 miles

7/30/19  

We once again went to the restaurant we had gone to last night but this time we rode our bikes.  One of the reason we went there again was it opened and 6:00 a.m. which helped us get an early start.  We were concerned about the heat today.

Our day started with a 16 mile climb.  My legs were not responding well after the long hard ride yesterday.  All we could do was keep a steady ride and keeping our heads down.

The pay off for the day was once we reached the summit the remaining ride was downhill.  This was a blessing because the heat we were concerned about hit us square in the face.

Our camp site was the Tonasket Visitor Center.  Only one restroom and a hose shower, but the worse was the 100 degree + temperature.  Also no internet service.

So I bailed out and went to the local hotel.  It was straight out of the 60s.  Shower and sink were both bright green.  But it had an air-conditioner that brought the temperature down to reasonable temperature.  It also had internet service but even that was a challenge.  The owner wrote down the pass word as “red 2C XXXX” but when I couldn’t get logged in he realized he wrote the password down wrong.  It was red20XXXX.  Easy fix.

I am now finished and I can rest for a little while before dinner.  The trip is coming to an end.
