Today’s Route and elevation profile
The first climb of the day up to Loop Pass started @ mile 10 and topped out @ 4020′ elevation at mile 21.8, where we had a rest stop. We then had a fast descent and ride to our 2nd rest stop @ mile 45.6.
On the descent we saw many fire trucks probably going to the Cascade National Smoke Jumper Base by which we had ridden.
Riding out of the 2nd rest stop we started climbing again and it was hot. We are now on the Eastern side of the Cascades which is warmer and more dry the the west side.
Lunch was at mile 73.3 above the Columbia River
After lunch we rode to our Hotel @ mile 102 which is next to the Grand Coulee Dam
