The Interlude, day 2

 6:30 am - Wednesday - June 22nd - Cedarville, CA - 46° F, humidity 52%, wind 2 mph out of the northeast.....crystal clear, blue, sunny skies today with a forecast high of 88° F.  On this date in 2012 TLE and I were at Manito Tap House in Spokane, WA sampling some of their brews....."a Steelhead Stout for me" she said.....↴

It gets light here even earlier than in Likely, and we were up a little after 6 am as a result....even with the curtains closed it was too bright in our room to sleep in any further.  Of course, when you have your own hot springs hot tub you take you coffee in the tub, right? How do you like that ''farmers" tan?...... that is how our day began, and ended. There was more reading, napping and soaking throughout the day, and a bike ride into Cedarville for lunch thrown in for good measure......

.....yup, we brought our eBikes specifically to ride into Cedarville to have lunch on Tuesday.  Woody's (burger place) opens around 11 am, so that is when we began our ride.  The one way distance into Cedarville to Woody's from Surprise Valley Hot Springs is about 5.4 miles, and we arrived there around 11:30 am.  Cedarville on a weekday is not very busy, even in the summer, so we were not surprised to find we were only the 2nd guests of the day.  I had read several Yelp reviews (Woody's gets 5 stars on 21 reviews) about their Western Burger (with cheese and bacon) so that is what I ordered....

.....I forgot to take a picture of my plate until I was half was a very good burger, and all of the ingredients were fresh, and certainly worth 4 stars in my book......I've had better  burgers, however, this one is not a 5 star burger, but was definitely worth the almost 11 mile round trip bike ride!  Surprise Valley is made up almost entirely of a dry lake bed which stretches for miles north and south.... all we covered 10.78 miles in 1 hour averaging 10.7 mph as one might guess.  595 caloric units were disposed of on this eBike ride...

,,,,we were back at room #13 by 1 pm at which time we took another soak.  There were several more putting contests.....sometimes I forget how competitve TLE can, on this day I prevailed in two of the three best out of 10 putting contests.

Our stay at Surprise Vallley Hot Springs has exceeded our expectations, and we definitely want to try to return later in our stay here in Modoc County.  The accomodations were very fact, surprisingy nice, and the privacy of having your own hot tub fed by hot mineral springs water is the way to go as far as I am concerned.  

Thanks for stopping by!
