9000 kilometres, 9 months and going strong!

  
We biked up to Mount Saint Helens. It was a big climb over Old Man’s Pass. But it was totally worth it to hear Derek’s awe at the view. As a geography teacher, he’s passionate about volcanoes. And this one is stunning.



On the way, we realized ‘closed for winter’ roads means closed until July, because that’s how long it takes for the snow to melt up here. So we quickly revised our plans, skipping the mountain pass we planned to ride over and heading instead to Eagle Cliff, Cougar and Woodland.


A beautiful detour and it looks like we’ll be able to continue on the Sierra Cascades route a little further north.

We’ve definitely learned to greet detours with enthusiasm this year. They always lead us to awesome adventures.
