|We camped near town|
Last weekend, I did one last local bike camping trip in preparation for the big trip on the Pacific Coast. As I thought that I would house-sitting, I booked a campsite near the city. It turns out that I didn't have to house-sit, but as I couldn't cancel the reservation, I decided to work around it.
We rode North on Saturday on Highway 97. We rode out 30 km to Salmon Valley. I haven't biked to there this year, but I have in previous years. It's a nice place to have a picnic by the river in the country.
We finished the trip by riding back to town, then up the hill on Highway 16 West to Blue Spruce Campground where we would be camping for the night.

At the campsite, we enjoyed some Butter Chicken which we heated on my stove. It was a bit spicy for our tastes though and I needed the beer to cool it down a bit. We will have to watch what we get in the future, but buying food to heat from the store is a lot cheaper then eating out all the time.
After a late dinner, we headed to bed.

During our break this cool dune buggy drove by. It is so Mad Max!
I was hoping to see the Texas 4000 Coastal Team go by, but they apparently would be getting a ride to up North to catch up with the Rockies team that I met earlier in July. Oh well!
