Friday & Saturday 7/12&13/2013
We got to Missoula Thursday evening and spent another night at Vicki and Ray's. Our friendship with them grows and we share very nice time together. Friday was a drive/shop/drive day to arrive at yet another fishing opportunity in Superior. Carl and Maura host the fishing club for an annual boat float fishing weekend at their cabin on the Clark River.

Three boats got filled for the float on Saturday and I took my bike ride. I got to the bridge near where they had put in at Dry Creek and was able to get some "action" photos.

I got to the end of the river road, turned around for my return and saw cows drinking down at the river. I could not figure out how they got there as the field (more like a hillside covered in brush) was across the road. Then a few cows crossed the road in front of me.

I crossed the river again and took the road on the other side of the river for a while. I got to the top of a hill and decided to not go down the other side to climb back up! I knew this road soon ended in rough gravel and dirt (that I would not be riding) and the trip home had some hills on the way, mild hills, but hills none the less, and that would surfice for climbing.

I headed back thinking I would stop and eat my apple once I was sure I was out of possible grizzly bear area ;'-) As I was contemplating my stop and eat place, along came my support vehicle with chilled, fresh cherries! Suzanne, Maura and Kelly had gone antiquing in St. Regis and were on their way back along my very route. What a treat to have the cherries and chat with friends.
I am not sure what we will do on Sunday -- stay here another night or depart for the next part of our adventure in eastern Washington. Stay tuned.
