We headed south, away from the mountains on a 33 mile loop ride.
The roads, for the most part, lack a berm or bike path. Traffic was light for about the first third and then became a little heavier as we changed roads.
We headed back via Whitefish Tail Road, enjoying nice views of the mountains and farms.
We gained 1400' of elevation so all in all, a nice first ride.
Jack and a deer do a stare-down. I've never seen such a concentration of deer in one area. They are everywhere.
There are some legit climbs nearby, a combination of three known as the "Triple Crown". I rode the 3 mile climb up Reservoir Road then another 3 miler then thought better of the trying the aptly named, "Big Mountain". Save that for another day. I finished with only 17 miles but with 1600' of climbing
We got together with a friend of Amy's who has a place on Whitefish Lake. The sun still sets after 9pm here which is so odd as in Tucson, sunset is at 7:15pm.
On our way home, we drove past the lake. Nice view. Regarding our temporary home....
....Jack seems to like it a lot.
