The Heat is Catching up to us


It looks as if the heat may be catching up with us here in the northwest. The forecasted highs for Sunday through most of the coming week are 100 to 102. The nights are forecasted to be the mid 50’s to 60’s.

Since we have been here, we had to the run the heat every night. Last night the heat still came on but now we are running the A/C in the motor home. Outside temperature is 90.

This morning Raija ventured out on the Coeur d’Alene trail.  She even went over the bridge and back. In all we did about seven miles.

We purchased an Idaho State Park annual pass for $40. That covers the parking fee at Heyburn State Park. We can now join the trail at Chatcolet Trail Head which is only a few miles from the RV Resort. At that point the trail is fairly level all the way to Harrison where the Ice Cream Creamery Store is. The annual pass is valid for all Idaho’s State Parks. The parking fee at the Chatcolet Trail Head parking lot is $5. Eight times out on the trail from there and we will recover the $40 for the annual pass. Of course that means I will have to have at least seven more Huckleberry ice cream cones.

I still have to come up with a way to mount the video camera to the bike.
