The wrap-up video is here, featuring footage across well rutted forest roads, two bike dumps, and cow herding.

After dislocating his shoulder and losing an eye, he drew designs for inspiration and guidance to his production team.
One of several pieces to help capture 300 colors of the spectrum.

Pumpkin patch in Snoqualmie River Valley just outside Fall City
I just signed up with
Instagram on my Windows Phone, using 6Tag, which allows new account creation, upload directly from a new picture or one already in your library, as well as browsing and tagging other photos. 6Tag has a robust set of filters, and getting robust investment from the developer. Good stuff.
So now let’s make sense of my photography publishing…
InstagramÂ is for sharing snapshots from my phone while on the go
SmugMugÂ is for sharing more developed photos as well as distributing hi-rez originals
PinterestÂ is for aggregating pictures of things I like
FacebookÂ is used by other people in my life who tag me. I rarely use it to publish, too restrictive.
SkydriveÂ is used to share photos with a selected group of people, such as a team at work, family members, and some friends.
Too many options.
The road meanders through more landscape recovering from forest fires
Finally dropping down onto hardtop, where we zip into Nighthawkâ€¦
â€¦the US side of the border crossing.
That night was spent in the municipal park at Grand Forks in Canada.
Let me also addâ€¦Route 3 east out of
Osoyoos is a wonderful road, I didn’t grab any stills, Mike might have grabbed some video. Highly recommended.
Eventually landing in Glacier National Park, where I’ll wrap up this segment of the report with a “I was here” shot, taken in the highly competitive photo op zone.
Mike came into one of the corners north of Conconully a little hot, front tire hit a stray rock, and the bike lowsided pretty fast. After inventory check, Mike was a bit sore, nothing broken, butâ€¦
â€¦the highway pegs punctured a hole into the left valve cover, and the bike was leaking oil.
After a little clean-upâ€¦
â€¦an application of 60 minute JB Weldâ€¦
â€¦a visit with these two fine gentlemen from West Seattleâ€¦
â€¦hammering on the dented panniers with a BK2â€¦
â€¦and otherwise enjoying the air at 6314 feetâ€¦
â€¦we were back in motion.
And the patch lasted great the rest of the trip. Mike does good work.
Camped at Rock Creek Campground, which had one of the cleanest WA State standard issue bathrooms we’ve ever seen. That’s the Nemo Morpho 1P on the left, and the latest edition Redverz on the right.
Descent into Ruby
End of the dirt section in Ruby
Slow down when you see cow pies. This is north of Conconully. We actually started to herd the cows with bikes further north, which was scary. Will share video footage of that later.
Taken somewhere along the Slide Ridge segment, the area is rebounding after forest fires
This is a Photosynth panorama of the Slide Ridge areaâ€¦the view is looking east over the road we just passed through. The synth will look better if you use the widget control to go full screen.
You can just see Mike on the upper right on the road through the trees.
Good example of the typical road conditions along the trail. I didn’t capture any of the treacherous stuff on my camera, we did grab some video footage which I’ll share in a later post.
