Now I know what a popsicle feels like
What a difference a couple of days make! 2 days ago I was crossing Montana in 94 degree weather and smoke from a huge forest fire. But today was a BIG change. I couldn't ride over the Lolo Pass due to snow, so I rode from Missoula to Seattle today, just under 500 miles. 1/3 of the day was riding through the mountains in 33 degree temps (with a couple of snow flurries), another third in decent weather and about 53, and the final third in on and off rain and 45-48 degrees. In the last 25 miles it went from 50 - 67 degrees, which was VERY welcome!
I have to tell you, this stretch of I-90 is absolutely gorgeous! I would love to ride this again without the low temps and rain, but it was still a spectacular ride. Given better weather I would have liked to ridden the Lolo Pass, but this wasn't a bad alternative as far as scenery goes.
I'm hanging out in the Seattle area for a few days visiting my brother, then I plan to head over to the coast and take a few days meandering home next week. More to come later!

The shortest distance between two points is for people who don't ride!
