I felt pretty good this morning. My left knee is a little sore but other than that…all good.
We are definitely in the mountains now. Seeing lots of snow covered peaks.
We followed the Skagit River for quite a ways today. River is flowing fast and seeing lots of waterfalls. River is flowing downhill and we were riding uphill.
It was a lot of uphill for the first 33 miles. Not super steep but long with some downhills thrown in. I felt much better today over 33 miles than I did yesterday.
The last 12 miles was pretty much one long, steep, continuous uphill. Pretty brutal and I struggled but some nice scenery.
Even got pretty close to a nice doe!
We are camping just before the climbs up Rainy and Washington passes. We will be climbing about 3,000 feet in 30 miles. I am hoping that early in the day I can handle it but this is going to be difficult.
There are no services for 48 miles. I really have no choice but to make it.
