Day 10 100 Mile House to McLeese Lake

It was a long day today at 135 kms. It was also a hot day today at 30 C. It was also the day of flats and tire failures.  Jos and Ken each had two and I think that everyone else a had at least one flat except Earnie. This added to the sometimes iffy shoulder conditions. The end result was that everyone was exhausted by time they got in.  

 We rolled out of camp at 8:00Am and by the time I got into camp it was 3:30 PM. The ride was very nice and we made great time when we were rolling but unfortunately we never were able to go very far before we stopped to fix a flat.

Lunch was in the William Lake Info. This was the most beautiful info center I have ever seen. It is a huge log building with great carved figures on the logs and an interesting sculpture inside which is based on a Pontiac Firefly which has been loaded down for camping.

Tonight we are camped at McLeese Lake resort which is a nice enough place however it is totally packed and the places for the tents are so hard that it is impossible to put tent pegs in.

Tomorrow we have a short ride into Quesnel and a rest day.
