Short Sunday morning ride in the rain

I can always count on Joe to take a ride in crappy weather with me. We went up to Palisades and he showed me a new-to-me road into the Indian Canyon section. I went to this area about a week ago for the first time. There's a few trails in there to explore. When I have a few more hours and the knobbies on the Rawland, I'm going to see if I can get through all the trails.


Check out this cool old sign that's on a closed road in the park:


Powerful sign. It's good to see it still standing. And sort of amazing.


I was surprised at the lack of cyclists riding this morning. I take a quick ride just about every Sunday from 9-10:30 or so. I've been seeing tons of cyclists every Sunday since May or so. I figured rain would keep a few people out, but not all of them. The only cyclists we saw this morning were a pack of grade-school girls who braved the rain to go to The Scoop.

I hear you. Sarah and I saw only 2 cyclists in 30 miles this morning.

Hey, you can only get so wet, right?

A buddy emailed me and informed me that it was day two of Tour de Lac today. So that accounts for the roadies...

That makes me feel a lot better.

I was one of the TDL folks, and it was a miserable 40 miles from Coeur d'Alene to home. I would have been better off in bed, because, while you can only get so wet, it was dang cold and windy as well. Miserable. But yesterday, 100+ miles around the lake, beautiful.

We went to see that sign and trail a couple of years ago. It's sad. Amazing that it's still there, so honest, and his fate not glossed over by a more "official" marker.

The sign is an excellent summary of the article about Garry in today's Spokesman-Review.

I love that area, did you go down to the waterfall? If you look at it just right there is supposedly what looks like the outline of a person, it's supposed to be chief Garry.
