A mile or two after the hail stopped, Jamie realized she'd forgotten her handlebar bag. She unloaded her bike and sprinted back up the mountain like a champion.
The descent finally over, we stopped in Kettle Falls for exquisite chicken burritos at Rios Tacos. $5.50 for a huge, delicious burrito? Yes.
In Colville, we stopped at Safeway and loaded up on groceries, the prospect of a real kitchen at the Bacon Bike Hostel just a few miles east of town in mind.
Finally, around 8, we made it to the hostel, where we cooked dinner, showered, and visited with Aaron, who started in Lansing and is headed to Seattle!
