cycling Newport to Metaline Falls WA

July 24, 2019 – day 15

Day 1 | 2 | 3 | 4-5 | 6-7 | 8 | 9 | 10 | 11 | 12-13 | 14 | 15 | 16 | 17 | 18 | 19 | 20 | 21 | 22 | 23 | 24info | video

My least favourite cycling day so far. Most of the day looked like this. Boring (and dangerous) highway.

On the bright side it was much cooler after the rain storm the night before.

You’d think cycling alongside the Pend Oreille River would be scenic. But the water is often out of site.

There are some nice stops, of course.

As you approach the Canadian border there is less and less development.

Sweet Creek Falls was a nice hike.

There are some big dams.

Dave had suggested I check out Metaline Falls. And it is a lovely town.

From there I headed towards Sullivan Lake finding my best campsite so far. This is National Forest.

I was able to dry everything.

And I enjoyed a campfire.

Only rarely do I have the time and energy to set up a fire.
