Today we rode to Mineral Point and Lost Lake in Sagle, ID. A bit of a drive down a dirt road to get to the trail head, but the ride was worth it. The views were a bit obscured by forest fire smoke and we did notice the smoke when we were wheezing uphill, but a lot of the ride was like going through the Jedi Forest… big beautiful red pine and cedar. We saw an owl, flushed a grouse and scared a small flock of quail. After the ride, we drove to Richland WA so we can get to Hood River in the morning. Before heading out, I had coffee with Tom Chasse, old friend from North Conway. He’s the CEO of Schweitzer and living in Sagle and enjoying life… good to know and good to see him.
