Yan biking through some light trails in NY, this was a short cut we took on our 2nd day.


Yan exhausted taking a break along the Erie canal.


Sam's computer at 1000 miles!!!


Changing a flat while on a loaded tour is a major project....see everything that needed to be unpacked.


Waiting out a storm in a lumber yard....sooo much fun :)


We made it to Niagra Falls. We almost rode 100 miles on this day. We were at 99.7 miles and went to bed!


The last dry picture we had in Niagra Falls, after this shot we went down and got soaked by the Falls



Both of us on the ferry from MI to WI. It rained constantly in MI and we were excited to get out.
