up at 6:15am, had above average continental breakfast at hotel
on the road by 7:30
we had a nice strong tail wind.
rode 55 KM to Cut Bank in 1 hour 40 minutes before taking a break at McDonalds.
rode next 40 KM to Shelbi in an hour where we enjoyed a lunch break
rode another 40 KM and took a short break at the side of the road so Carl could replace his slow-leaking tube
last 28 KM to Chester took less then 45 minutes
after many days in the mountains it is quite nice to ride fast on flat roads.
the scenery was lovely. Vast open fields that seem to go on forever with large mountains in the distance.
while walking back to our hotel room after dinner we heard a cat crying quite loudly. We investigated and saw a tiny white kitten up in a tree. James reached up and rescued the cute little kitty and when he put it down on the ground the kitten started following us back to our hotel. We purchased a can of tuna inside the hotel store and we laid it down near where we found the cat. The kitten seemed quite pleased.
