Day 10 Finally a Tailwind!
We started out earlier this morning in the hopes of getting some miles done before it got hot. Our first 22 miles flew by as we had a nice tailwind from Carlton to Pateros. We stopped just outside of Pateros at a nice fruitstand/bakery/gift shop. It was called The Rest Awhile Fruitstand. So we did! We had delicious scones (mine was raspberry white chocolate) and smoothies. They hit the spot nicely. Then we turned onto Hwy 97 where we were in the sun for the rest of the ride. One long uphill and then down brought us into Chelan where we pulled off and had some lunch (PB & J on Blueberry Struesel bread). We rode the last ten miles to Lake Chelan State Park where we are parked for today and tomorrow. By the way, we crossed the Methow River 10 times this morning (quite the winding river).
