Looking for America while Cycling in Washington and Idaho (Video)

In May 2017 we went on a two week road trip from our home in Vancouver, British Columbia. We crossed the border to Washington and drove to Clarkston, at the south-eastern corner of Washington. We did two bike trips – a five day trip which we named the Snake River Loop, which was very scenic and included quiet roads, bike paths and small town America in both Washington and Idaho. On the second trip we followed the Centennial Trail from Spokane, Washington to Coeur d’Alene, Idaho and back over three days. It was our first trip to the States post Trump and in a way we went to “look for America”, hoping to find the same kindness we had encountered on previous trips. We met incredible people and experienced amazing hospitality from five different Warmshowers hosts who welcomed us and our son with open arms. Good old America is still there.
