WEMT 2011: Day Two
[9:17:29 PM] The day started out cool,
and got cooler as we rode to and over Chinook Pass (WA). The road over the pass only opened two days ago, so the snow was still piled high–over ten feet in some places.
We were fortunate that Mt. Rainier showed himself to us and my KTM wasn’t shy about getting in the center of attention.
We had a good mix of terrain today — lots of hills, mountians, farmland. We rode narrow country roads, through a few towns, and did soe highway miles too. Don’t shudder–since this is a teaching tour, we want to ride on every surface and road ty e possible for the ladies to gain experience and confidence in a wide variery of riding conditions. We wont be doing hardly any freeway, though, because there’s just too much great scenery to be seen off the interstates.
We’re in Walla Walla tonight and had a nice dinner at a steakhouse. Sorry but the hot tub is calling.
