After yesterday’s tough day, i already decided to cut today short and head for Kamiah. Today would see a 2000 feet drop in elevation, sounds easy? It wasn’t! The first 30 miles or so consisted of rolling hills despite the map showing down hill all the way.
Again the picture above doesn’t look steep, but it was and it was long. After what seemed like an age of hill climbs i decided to take a short lie down in some shade. A construction worker came past, i asked how far to kamiah, he replied about 8 miles but after this hill it is mostly all down hill. I’ve heard that before, people don’t realise hills when they are in a car, it all seems flat. Fortunately, he was exactly right, the next 6/7 miles were all nicely down hill, i cruised into town, headed for a cafe and then got a motel. Its been a tough two days, with more climbing to come. Definitely no more updates for a couple days, so patience will be needed. Oh and for those worried about my diet, i had carrots for dinner tonight(and hot dogs).
