Sure enough, the temps dropped overnight. We awoke to the gentle pitter patter of raindrops on the tent. It was sunday -- a perfect day to stay snuggled up in the warm and dry sleeping bags in the tent. If only. We did our best to gear up in the tent, and then at the first break in the drizzle, we loaded the bikes. There's an art to this. Dry inner layers in the tent, then you pretty much have to gear up to ride with rain gear before breaking camp. If you forget to pack something, everything gets wet. Sleeping bags get packed in drybags inside the wolfman along with the obviously wet tent. As soon as feasable, everything comes out to dry. LDF took a photo of the lake -- shrouded in fog and mist. Not what we were hoping for. Hopefully we'll be back someday. Today's route would continue on the Lolo (blue-rated). We'd skip the legendary and potentially lethal Pete King trail (red), pass through Lowell for gas, then head south towards Elk City on mostly green, with a short stretch of yellow and blue-rated trail thrown in. Sections were in various portions of Clearwater, Bitteroot, and Nez Perce National Forests. As the red track indicates, we did some backtracking. Not cause we were chasing down a challenge point, but... well, you'll see. A touch over 100 miles -- we were really falling behind pace. Oh well.
