Day 56!

On Saturday we rode a short 35 miles from Sand point to Newport Washington.  Most of it was a beautiful ride along a river. Stopped at a small town called Priest River for a cup of coffee; the main road was blocked off for the annual Timber Day celebration. There was a parade, a logrolling contest, ax throwing, tree cutting, and other similar competitions. The whole town seem to be quite into it and it was great fun. An interesting parade item was an old school bus decked out in flowers and looking like an old hippy van except that the back was plastered with Trump stickers.The parade has a standard local police and fire department contributions, but also trucks filled to the brim with logs, goats, and logging equipment.
