|I love old buildings...how weird izzat?|
I reached Walla Walla by mid-morning and stopped for breakfast, then back-tracked a couple of miles to see an historic site commemorating a major battle between the locals - Native Americans versus the US Army. Eventually the Army won.
|Small digs for a family|
With Walla Walla behind me I rode through miles & miles of Washington's grain fields. Well, maybe not actually through the fields, that would be dumb wouldn't it? More like next to them. On pavement. See?
Pomeroy seemed like a welcome rest stop & photo op. I sat on a bench in front of the local agra-biz office and gulped down a cold can of designer drink. Been consuming a lot of that type of stuff lately, gotta keep the electrolytes up to speed. Whatever those things are. Ask Linda....
|If I lived in Pomeroy this is the house I'd want. Wot?|
|Note the temperature reading....Phew!|
Shortly after leaving Pomeroy I reached the scenic drive that follows a meandering river nearly all the way to Missoula. Sidecar pilots take note, the sign says it all.
|This would be a major workout|
I also saw moose on two occasions, the first one was standing in water eating the tender greens and the next was busy snacking on whatever moose snack on when not in water. Eh?
|Road side snack time|
I arrived in Missoula right at 7:00 pm mountain time which made me an hour later than I expected. Not a
problem though, I scored a nice room at the local Super 8, had a small pizza at the Pizza Hut next door, and crashed for the night.
Today's mileage was 385, tomorrow's a whole new day. This ain't so bad.
