The Bighorns

Today we rode from Buffalo into the big horns. The beginning half of the ride was extremely demanding; within the first 34 miles we climbed more than 5,500 feet. That’s a vertical mile! However, after we made it to the top, which was about 9,666 feet in elevation, the day became much easier. The remaining 22 miles were mostly downhill into a canyon. The beautiful landscape consisting of mountains, trees, and cliffs were breathtaking. Today was by far one of the most beautiful days of the trip. Tonight we will enjoy the beauty firsthand as we are camping in the Bighorn National Forest. The team has no cell phone service so mom and dad, don’t worry, we are all fine.
