Today we rode over our first mountain pass, Alpowa Summit. Not nearly as high as Colorado passes but you start the climbing at a much lower altitude. We learned that the fields of yellow flowers are Canola and awe also learned that the fields of beans we have been riding past are lentils. These crops are new to us. The exciting part of the day was the descent of Alpowa, all the way down to the Snake river. A drop of over 2100 feet.
