Today had two enjoyable sections. The first was climbing up Emigrant Pass, a 12 mile climb. I really enjoy climbing. It's actually kind of fun - a nice challenge and a great reward. Unlike on flat ground, where pushing harder just gets your more wind resistance and very little additional speed, on a hill, pushing harder gets you up the hill faster.
The second enjoyable section was taking a detour through the Carlin Canyon. It was a short little jaunt, and Nevada doesn't have the prettiest canyons in the world, but it was still a nice ride for a few miles
Our next two days total over 230 miles. This is going to be hard. Probably the hardest stretch of the entire trip across the country. We'll see how it goes.
