Day 6- Camp Sweyolaka, 1 state down

Wednesday, June 17, 2009

Today was supposed to be a very easy 35 mile ride from Spokane, Washington to Coeur D’alene, Idaho on a bike trail. We finished the day at 55 miles after getting lost several times throughout the ride. The scenery along the ride was gorgeous and crossing into another state was a real sense of accomplishment.

35 miles turned into 55 miles

We arrived at our scheduled lodging Camp Sweyolakan around noon and took a pontoon boat across to the camp, the only way in and out of the camp.

The boat packed to full capacity

The camp counselors had just arrived and were in training, so we served as their practice campers. Sloppy Joes were served for lunch, truly bringing home the camp feeling. The afternoon was open and the counselors were nice enough to open up their stations for all of us, so we all had an opportunity to do the high ropes course, archery, and play on the water trampoline and go swimming. The day was relaxing and a perfect way to spend a day, somewhat nostalgic for me.
