What did the fish say when he ran into a wall? … dam
Water water everywhere and not a drop to drink. It was a beautiful ride today from Libby up to Eureka that followed along lake Koocanusa that runs for 90 miles from Libby up into Canada. With all that shoreline there was not a single house built on it anywhere that I saw. It is a beautiful unspoiled lake in northern Montana with great fishing (so I was told). The lake was always 100 feet below the the road so I couldn’t get down to filter water except for one location. So, it was a very long dry day. With all the solitude of that remote area it came as quite a surprise to me when I heard voices while I was riding. I pulled over to make sure I wasn’t hallucinating. I happily discovered rock climbers hanging from the rocks close to the road. Shortly after the rock climbers I meet a west bound cyclist that took the train from Chicago to whitefish and was cycling to Seattle from there. We swapped info about what was ahead and I gave him some extra water as I was less than 10 miles from my stopping point.
