Today we took a rest day - time off of the bikes. We slept in. We wiled away the morning and in the afternoon we took a hike down to the Shut-ins.
Shut-ins is a term used to describe a river that is shut in by rock walls and cannot change it’s course. It makes a great place to go wading/swimming and just escape the heat of the day. It was a busy place today. The trail continued up over a ridge then back down to the river. About a 2.5 mile hike. Finished up the afternoon with ice cream.
