Day 5: Blue Lake to stealth camp outside of Sparwood

Ride time: 2:55
Average: 10.7 mph
Distance: 31.43 mi

We bums (we're still traveling with Ed) slept in until 9:30 this morning.  After a power ride to Elkford, we had a delicious lunch at Emi's Cafe (just in time, too--they had to close shortly after we got there because the afternoon cook was sick and couldn't come in).  We did not follow the map today because we took Hwy 43 from Elkford to Sparwood to save time.  This was the first day that we didn't have any rain!!  Woohoo!
Our tent was the only thing that blended into the forest.
We stealth camped in some wildlife preserve that is on the same road as the donkeys and ranchettes just outside of Sparwood.  Tomorrow, we'll bike a short distance and check into some sort of lodging in Sparwood and take a rest day.
