After climbing out of Mississippi Creek canyon to Pacheco Ridge, I look down into the canyon that will be home tonight.
Great, it only took me an hour to go down into the canyon and come up the other side. I was able to ride the 10-ton bike almost all the way up the hill, with practically no bike dragging. The hot weather isn't bothering me at all.
I stop for a few minutes at the top of Pacheco Ridge to enjoy the views and look down at the road in the canyon below, where I'll soon be.
