After breakfast and saying goodbye to our hosts we headed off up Sherman Pass. Yet another climb this one seemed to go on for a long while.
It was fairly cloudy and then it started to rain.
We got to the top of the pass, and after a spot of lunch the rain really came down. It rained so much it stung a bit. The waterproofs did there best but they just aren’t that waterproof when the rain is so intense.
We got stopped for a long while at some road works and then had to cycle in a convoy. It was still raining. We made it to the bottom of the hill and the crossing of the Columbia River the second largest in the USA.
We head through Kettle Falls and on to Colville in the rain. We got some supplies in Wallmart, this one seemed nicer and emptier than the first one we went to. As we left the store the weather started to brighten up, it turned into a nice evening.
After this we headed through town to a free bike hostel. It is the top level of a farm house. It is very nicely furnished, and very good. I cannot believe it is free. It is nice to sit down and relax.
