For one, it's beautiful. I rode parts of the course this morning and I just didn't want to stop. The lake. The evergreens. The mountains. It's just as I imagine Montana looks like.
For two, it smells good here. Like fresh air. And when the wind blows it smells like a Christmas wreath.
But mostly I think this place is awesome because the people are so darn nice! I've never had so many people start conversations with me in the grocery store. And smile at me. And let me go on my bike even when they have the right of way. :)
|The view for the majority of the bike course. Otherwise you get to look at the pretty lake.|
|And this would be the pretty lake.|
Otherwise, I want to really enjoy the trip which thus far has been easily achieved! Tonight I pick my mom and Oscar up at the airport which will greatly enhance my trip! This is a special weekend for Oscar and I as we are celebrating our 10th anniversary tomorrow. Hard to believe it's been 10 years.
|Oscar had anniversary flowers waiting for me when I arrived at the hotel!|
|We look so young - oh wait, we were! :) Had to dig out at least one old one.|
