This scenery is unremitting. My eyes simply cannot take another day of this. My head may explode. Mind = Blown.
Other than the spectacular scenery, today was notable in that we did close to 5000 feet of climbing yet at the end of the day we are only 500 feet above sea level. We rode 46 miles and apparently it was not flat. We were so distracted by our surroundings that we hadn’t noticed how much climbing we were doing until we looked at the GPS data at the end of the day. I don’t mean to toot our own horn (Oh wait…yes I do), but at this stage of our trip I feel pretty confident that we can beast any climb.
