Shannon rides through the snow. There were flurries on and off all day and more snow on the ground the closer we got to the springs. We were lucky that it melted on contact with the road---no ice for delicate road tires....
Shannon's feet started to get cold, so she put on her DIY overboots made from a pair of fluffy fleece socks her mom sent her. You can't tell in this picture, but the socks have little paw prints all over them. Totally cute, funny and according to Shannon---very warm!
The finish line: Chena Hot Springs! After this, we drank beer, soaked in the outdoor rock pool and ate dinner.
Not pictured is Fromage: our drop-off and pick-up man. He met us at the Springs and drove our tired asses back home.
Maybe we can sneak in some frosty mountain biking...but this morning, the world is covered in a couple of inches of snow.....this might be IT: winter has started.
Farewell road biking until next spring.....sniff.....
