The Things We Do For a Bed

28 05 2015

Today we had a decision to make.


Crossing the Skeena River just outside Terrace

At the 99 km point, we could stop for the day and set up camp.  Or we could go 40 km further and sleep in a bed.  Two other factors were hanging in the air.  Because of somewhat awkward distances we had a 33 km day planned before we got to Smithers,  but always thought we’d combine it with another day. The forecast is also predicting some rain.


We are definitely in mountain country.

The desire for a comfy bed and shelter won the coin toss, and we went the extra distance.  A total of 141 km, climbing 1700 meters,  and 7 hours on the bike seat. 


So happy to see this sign!

There’s a reason we’re tired.
