Two important crossings today. We crossed into Idaho and we crossed the time zone to Pacific time zone! It’s all wrapping up so quickly. We had another downhill day, 40 miles to Clark Fork, Idaho. I’m getting spoiled with all these down hill days. I need to keep in mind that the climbing is not over yet.
It was a good riding day and the weather was beautiful. That is until the last 6 miles where the heavens opened the floodgates and commenced dumping buckets of rain down upon us, complete with the roar of thunder and electrifying flashes of lightening. Okay maybe that’s a little over the top for description … or not.
In the end we are happily ensconced at the Clark Fork lodge, another cute independent motel that is clean and cozy, and they have a grill available for guest use. Looks like it’s BBQ chicken for this evening!

|We passed a pallet company that had dozens of old cars|
and trucks sitting out along the road. A storm was on the way
so we didn't have much time to linger.
