Ruth: Somewhere at around the 35km mark I realized I was pedaling. Our ride down from the National Park was wonderful even if I cost us both a set of brake pads. We stayed up high on a ridge for 11 kms before plunging down to the valley below. The remaining distance into Phrae was either flat or slightly downhill, making for a fast ride.
There are, of course, some Buddhas, including this huge reclining one. We also enjoyed watching some workmen creating the stucco work on another temple in the same compound
