16-06-05 Day 70 Surfing- Mark Trail Bikes
Biking the Trans America
2 Wheels, 6 Months, 1 Adventure
The tent and sleeping bag were wet due to camping out in the open and next to a raging snow melt filled river… Uggg…..
The day was all downhill without any services… No bathroom to put in my contacts.. Just another day in paradise.
I met Daniel getting ready to start his day pedaling up the river.. Well at least he had the wind at his back.. He has been on the road for 14 MONTHS… Now that’s WOW….
all over the country… He is truly a ROCKSTAR…
We talked for a half hour, prayed and biked on..
I found a bathroom at a historic ranger station on rt 12 about half way between Lolo Pass and Kooskia. The road was a path at one point.. The historic passage of Lewis and Clark and the Nez Perce Indians. Lots of geology and history…
There is ONE wave in the Lochas River that you can SURF.. . Really… Joe and the boys were fresh water surfing. Another eye opening experience.. On to Kooskia Cafe for dinner and the sprinkler filled City Park for bed..
