... So we organised everything, and I made a box full of presents that I planned to send home (since my suitcase is already at a bulge and we're only 2 weeks in).

I went over a mountain called Bread Loaf today. Fitting with its name, the beginning was super steep, the middle had gentle rolling hills following a river, and the end was a nice 12% grade down.
