Spent the past weekend in good company as our small group of 8 decided to ride an out and back along the peaceful Coeur d’Alene bike trail. Putting in at Mullan Idaho and pulling along our camp gear for an overnight trip using BOB trailers was the plan, so we pedaled along taking an entire day to pedal the 60 miles. Taking the opportunity of stopping at every small town and every good view along the route. It wasn’t very hard to find the views, plus there was also lots of wildlife abound (sand hill cranes, deer, snakes, turtles, birds)…. but nothing near as wild as what we encountered at the sleepy town of Harrison, which also happened to be our lake shore overnight destination. Mix together some cheap beer, some good pizza, and a sock hop and you have yourself the making for a damn good party in Harrison at a bar called ‘One Shot Charlie’. I’m still not exactly quite sure what a sock hop is…….but i’m guessing it involves beer, good music and an active dance floor. Good times followed and we stayed out late making the early a.m. wake up and 60 mile return trip a little more difficult.

Here’s a decent photo sequence of the entire route: Mullan To Harrison
