After a day in touristy SandPoint, ID–where we enjoyed amazing coffee (current record-holder for best morning coffee on the bike trek) and pastries at Pine Street Coffee–we continued into Montana where we will spend 15 days!

So far, here’s where we’ve been:

  • the charming Amber Bear Inn in Heron;
  • then after a stop at Kootenai Falls we were on to Libby;
  • then to Rexford Bench on the shores of the Reservoir called Lake Koocanusa;
  • on to the resort town of Whitefish;
  • two days in the gem of Glacier National Park;
  • the plains began at Cut Bank;
  • coasted on to Chester.

And here are the all-consuming stats:
