Aside from some mega wind, the day was perfect for riding. I loaded up a new-to-me route between Loon Lake and Chewelah on my GPS. My bike-mount GPS is being a piece of crap: the maps never work anymore and as an added bonus, it reboots intermittently and randomly. Errg.

Anyway, if you want to see where I went -- the first track of the trip is here. Second is here. If you want to make your own routes from gmap-pedometer, Loon to Chew is here. Chew to Kettle Falls is here.

|Junk Food Store run.|
|Maddie is rocking the Miami. She's pretty useful with that as the main hauler of everything.|
|Snake meet Maddie.|
