Yakima to Ellenburg

We left at our usual 7:00 am this morning on what was SUPPOSE to be a short easy 30 mile ride.

The first 10 miles were along the river on a bike path and through quiet neighborhoods. The only excitement was a flat on my bike, that was quickly fixed with help from everyone.

As we started through the canyon we saw

Vern assured us that didn’t mean us. So we headed onward and upward on a nice quiet road with almost no traffic, snapping pictures as we went.

Well it did mean us. A section of the road had been covered several feet deep with mud and rocks from a flash flood Tuesday night. There was no way they were going to let us pass.

So back through the canyon we went and at the other end we met Marilyn. We loaded the bikes on the car and headed into Ellenberg on the Interstate.
Tomorrow is a long day with a lot of climbing.
