Today is going to be brief. I got a late start at 8:50, I guess the Hammock shelter did me right as I couldn't bring myself to get out of it. I rode up hill almost all day. I have become very familiar with my lowest gears! I'm getting to think if my speedometer goes over 10 miles per hour that I'm really going some place now! I spent hours of riding today at 3.5-5.0 miles per hour. Wow it is really hard to get somewhere when you are traveling just faster than a walking pace. The combination of continuous climbing and the lack of oxygen at 6000-8000 ft. makes Chris a very slow boy (and very tired). At least I scored a great room for cheap at Kirkwood and some good pie at the Kirkwood Inn.
