Day 72 In and Out of Hells Canyon

Cambridge, ID to Halfway, OR via Hells Canyon

Today 58.5 miles

Total 4,005.4 miles

“If you can’t stand the heat, get out of the kitchen” Harry S Truman

You may have noticed that much of the planning that goes into a long distance bike trip involves avoiding heat and headwinds. Both can be miserable! Today, our route took us up over the rim of Hells Canyon then down into the canyon itself where temperatures were predicted to be 101 degrees. We left at 5 am and climbed for 15 miles in the cool morning air. The descent into the canyon was actually quite chilly but when we stopped for breakfast near the canyon floor temps were already in the 80’s. We made a quick run of 20 miles or so along the canyon floor next to the Snake River while the temperature rose, then quickly turned for the climb up and out. Sixteen miles later we were at our destination, Halfway, Oregon, aptly named as a point about halfway out of the deepest Canyon in North America (yes, it is deeper than the Grand Canyon). You’re right, we can’t stand the heat!

Once we crossed the dam, we were in Oregon!

Again, I can’t explain this one!

  1. Wow ! Over the 4,000 mile pedaled mark plus first stop in your final state of Oregon…keep it up!!

  2. Wow! Pat, its Mike Gast. Just spoke to Howard Duff who told me your story. What you’re doing is amazing and I’ll follow your blog regularly. Howard and I talked about you coming with us in September on a canoe trip in the St. Regis Canoe Area in the Adirondacks. You should be in shape to carry the canoes (and all the gear), while Howard and I carry the beer. Good luck on your journey.

  55. I have been surfing online more than 4 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all webmasters and bloggers made good content as you did, the internet will be much more useful than ever before.

  64. I leave a comment each time I especially enjoy a post on a website or if I have something to contribute to the discussion. It’s caused by the fire communicated in the post I looked at. And after this post CF Colors v 2.1, Post Formats Admin UI v1.3.1, and Social v2.10 : alexking.org. I was excited enough to drop a thought 😉 I actually do have some questions for you if you usually do not mind. Could it be simply me or do some of these responses come across as if they are written by brain dead folks? 😛 And, if you are writing at additional sites, I would like to follow anything new you have to post. Could you make a list the complete urls of all your communal pages like your Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?
