Day 5 Recap
Yesterday is when the adventure really began. The day started in the cold rain. We rode through the rain, getting coated with muddy slime from the haul trucks passing us in the opposite direction. Gas stations are now less frequent, and we've encountered several that are unexpectedly closed for good. Or have a sign with something like "sorry, no gas today". The smooth pavement turned into a rough, jagged press of gravel chips. It began to be more... difficult.
Finally, we reached camp. On the most beautiful lake I've ever seen. And there is more in store for today.
