4 passes daySeptember 23 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 11 °C
Today was quite exhausting. We took off from Hood River and cycled almost all day uphill (1789m in total) with nasty side and head winds. In the end, we made 4 passes (not that far apart though): Bennett Pass, Barlow Pass, Wapinitia Pass, and Blue Box Pass.
Then, daily routine started: once it's about 4, we start looking for a campspot. Once found (ideally next to a river, creek or lake), we pitch the tent, wash ourselves, do some stretching for the legs, cook dinner, do the dishes, get ready for bed when it's dark at around 7:30pm and write our footprint for the (of course)!). Today, we found a good spot early, so we are in bed at 7 already ;)Read more
