I thought it did a pretty good impression of Salisbury Crags myself.
Baseline Road was very quiet and proved to be very long and straight as the following pictures show, one taken in each direction.
I was making very good time (for me!) and keeping pace with some riders who were normally way ahead of me and then heard a clang as I went over a bump. An odd sound persisted and I discovered two spokes had broken yet again. Of course, I blame the bumpy ground and the regular cattle grids. I limped into the SAG stop and Mike came in and replaced them with the ones I had taped to my bike. He didn't even complain, a true professional! This meant I was last away so had to go as fast as I could but as we entered the smooth shoulder of the Interstate which was nice and quiet, I was able to pick up plenty speed and got to the next SAG stop in good time. I had time to see Register Rock whch was signed by some of the early settlers as they passed through.
And I was reassured to discover that the residents of the town of American Falls with a bit of a drink problem were fully catered for.
And I also passed one of the more creative farmers who clearly made good use of his downtime.
Yes, that is one of his big sheds!
I had some difficulty with the route sheet and went the wrong way into Pocatello but with the help of a couple of locals, found my way to the hotel which is very comfortable indeed and myself, Ken and Don have a nice and rather enormous suite. We had a good dinner at 6 followed by a bicycle safety clinic which was very useful. Last photo is my new T shirt purchased from JC Penney for $5.99. Bargain.
