    Recovering day

    September 15, 2019 in the United States ⋅ 🌧 13 °C

    After the exhausting tour across Washington Pass, we needed a more quiet day. We took it slowly, had a good breakfast and left Whintrop by almost noon for an easy 70km mainly downhill ride to Alta Lake State Park.
    We left in the rain but, luckily, it stopped after a couple of hours. The locals are actually happy about the rain as fires are not uncommon during summers as you can see in the photos (signs of last year's fire). So we just ignored the wet weather and enjoyed the views of Methow River, uncountable pear and apple orchards, farm houses and soft hills until we got to our beautiful campspot at Alta Lake.

    Chelan, Washington

    July 12, 2016 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 21 °C

    It was so nice to finally get a shower last night, even if it was a pay shower! We slept in until 7ish & as we were eating breakfast & getting ready for the day, Chris arrived early, after finishing his CDT ride yesterday afternoon. After we helped him unpack, the 3 of us headed into town to explore. We had a yummy lunch at the Fox and Quail Bistro & visited a fun little shop, & then stopped by a pub that also served goodies from a local bakery. Then we drove around to find the Chelan falls & visited a local park before stopping by a roadside wine/fruit shop near the orchards & vineyards to grab a bottle & so Chris could officially get a Washington apple. We headed back to camp just as it started to drizzle. The rain & crazy winds seem to have been chasing us this whole trip! Luckily, the rain passed us over quickly this time and was mostly just wind. We took a walk along the lake and climbed some rocks to get a nice spot to enjoy the view for a while. Then Chris inflated one of his spare inner tubes & attempted to float in the frigid water for awhile while we enjoyed his antics from the beach. Tonight is our last night of camping. Tomorrow we head to Seattle to sleep in an actual house & enjoy some nice sightseeing.Read more
