Smoke gets in your eyes

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.
