Day Three – Spritzle and Schnitzel

We began the day by riding through some of the most beautiful farm land we have ever seen.  We climbed north out of Lewiston into rolling hills of crops in all shades of green and bursts of yellow.  They went on for miles and miles.  We never knew there was so much agriculture in Idaho. In contrast, Coeur d’Alene and the twenty miles north of it were nothing but traffic and stop lights. 

We entered British Columbia, Canada through Eastport. The scenery reminded Cathy of lower Alaska. We did not see any animals but we did see Bald Eagles, ospreys and lots of ravens.  We a spritzel of rain but our gear kept us dry. 

We pulled into Radium Hot Springs around 5:00 pm. It is a cute town. We took a walk to look for a dinner spot and happened upon this place. We both had the schnitzel special and it was delicious!

We felt like we were in the Alps with German music playing and this view! 

Tomorrow we ride to Jasper. It is going to be a soggy ride, we fear. This is what it looks like in that direction right now…

Happy trails!
