The only change from last year to now was we decided to go a few weeks earlier to make sure we could traverse through the Taft Tunnel (it closes at the end of September) and avoid the beginning of hunting season in the area. Avoiding going up and over the tunnel was also on the agenda as that fireroad climb is brutal (mostly a hike-a-bike actually).

|The brother modelling our accom's for the night before the trip starts. These little cabins were pretty simple and located in the campground in Wallace, ID. Also on site is City Limits brew pub - great food, worth a visit.|
|Map of the route and area. Sure wish I had this last year :)|
|One of the many trestles on the Route of the Hiawatha. We were a little bummed that the fog/rain was obscuring the beautiful views of the valleys below but it was still breath-taking in its own way.|
|So much mud. Ortlieb's new bikepacking bags worked flawlesslyover the whole trip - including the first day's all day deluge of rain and mud. This trip made me realize that full fenders are going on my next touring bike for sure!|
|The finish line! Tasty eats and drinks a the City Limits Brew Pub. Another great adventure in the bag.|
