Whirlpool Canyon (on the Liard River, British Columbia, Canada)

This was an unexpected break… After a very long day yesterday, we headed out this morning exhausted, determined to pedal about thirty miles before stopping. 24 miles later we pulled into an abandoned campground next to some beautiful rapids – and just couldn’t drag ourselves away.

It’s been a wonderful afternoon of hanging out in the banks of the beautiful river, playing in the huge logjam caused by spring flooding, reading, writing, doing math, and – most of all – relaxing. I think we need more days like today.

About Nancy Sathre-Vogel

After 21 years as a classroom teacher, Nancy Sathre-Vogel finally woke up and realized that life was too short to spend it all with other people's kids. She and her husband quit their jobs and, together with their twin sons, climbed aboard bicycles to see the world. They enjoyed four years cycling as a family - three of them riding from Alaska to Argentina and one exploring the USA and Mexico. Now they are back in Idaho, putting down roots, enjoying life at home, and living a different type of adventure. It's a fairly sure bet that you'll find her either writing on her computer or creating fantastical pieces with the beads she's collected all over the world.
