On Thursday we left at 2:30 pm and rode up to Ontario, OR. Here is my glove setup. I bought some black duct tape too and used it to cover the slits I cut in the gloves. Works like a dream! The vibration (when riding) on the pins is a bit painful at times.

The next day we rode up to Vancouver. There was a bridge out on the I-5, which delayed us a bit, but we eventually made it. We met some friends for dinner and then retired.

The next day we attended some business meetings in Vancouver. In the late afternoon, we headed back across the border and over to North Cascades National Park in Washington. The Cascades were INCREDIBLE! Check out the pictures!

Saturday night we stayed in a really cool old little cowboy town called Winthrop, WA. What a cool place! There are some old buildings there still standing from the early 1900’s and the town has a rich history in mining.

On Sunday we blitzed it across Washington and over to Missoula, MT. When we got there we ran into some weather. There was some pretty heavy rain in the direction we were headed in Idaho. So we found a motel and got some shut eye. Monday we rode the epic stretch through Salmon and Challis Idaho on our way back to Salt Lake City.
