Day 59!

Today was a short 43 mile ride from Republic to Tonasket WA.  There was a modest climb but overall the ride was fairly easy.  This portion of Washington is hot and dry, with vegetation that looks much like Phoenix.  This will likely change as we continue to climb into the Northern Cascades over the next couple of days.  Though Washington overall is a blue state, this part is not;  I’ve seen countless “Keep America Great Again” signs throughout the last couple of days.  I guess the last couple of years has made us great once more.

Tomorrow starts the last two tough days of the trip, with a steep climb to Loup Loup Pass. After Thursday, we head south toward Seattle along a flat bike path.
