|The morning started out with a good mix of blue sky and
clumulus clouds but after a bit a low cloud cover / fog was the order
of the morning.
As was listed yesterday were the notes for the fuel system. Bottom line is that with reserve I can get better than 300 miles while traveling with load a highway speeds.
Something that I started to see yesterday - fenced fields with horses and cattle - I saw more of today. Even some fields with irrigation systems.
From Frazier Lake through Prince George and beyond the ride put me into a "processing miles" mode. The road was filled with trucks - logging (full and empty in both directions), tandem trucks that I have no clue what they would carry (I took a picture of one), and fuel rigs. The scenery was a bit bland by comparison to the day before.
The road was often lined with trees not allowing a "view out" but where you could see there were low but massive rolling hills. Timber processing plants were seen along the way too.
Things changed about Cache Creek. From here the valley became more dramatic. The landscape changed from grasses and trees to scrub turf. The road brought forth views of the valley, the snow capped mountains, a mountain river (?? river), and trains - often on both sides of the valley - hugging the canyon walls even moreso than the roadway does.
There's no chance I'll make the border before dark - now to find a spot close by and get some food and rest. Tomorrow I think I'll deviate and return up the valley for a different loop through the area.
