|A great trip with great scenery, great people, food, support and music. There were three 100 mile days, with one very, very hot one.
I saw more injuries this time than any other, though I think it had more to do with where I was than the total number of injuries. A star-filled night with coyotes off in the distance was one of the highlights, as was a lovely climb over Makenzie Pass with it's lava flows and warm, clear views of mountains. My fitness is now at its peak for the year, and I'll now start the (hopefully) slow slide into winter conditioning.
