It was cold when we woke up this morning- in the mid 40’s. We each had a fantastic mights sleep- being tired and after cleaning off in a river.
The route today was all big rolling hills through beautiful scenery that risks becoming mundane- I mean it’s just one stunning mountain after another…
We did’n’t have any lunch with us so we stopped about every 45 minutes for a high carb snack. It was also very hot so we drank lots of water- filtered enroute- and used salt tablets every hour or so.
We are camped at a big municipal campground in Elkford, BC and had lovely showers, washed some clothes and ate a huge dinner with two (each) ice cold Kokanee lagers!
Tomorrow we have a steep 2,000 – 3,000′ climb out of town for crossing #2 and then a hilly ride to somewhere.
By the way, John is riding El Rojo and I am riding Ernie (Guzman). I will give you our trail names tomorrow.
Daily totals (notice improving trend): 41 miles and 2,000′ climbing
A pretty good gravel road:
