On the route today stood the imposing figure of rogers pass, standing at 5,600 feet, this should signal kid highest point of my trip( baring any unpleasant surprises on the east coast). Unsurprisingly, going was slow, it took about 2 hours of mostly climbing to reach the summit but then there it was, just passed Americas coldest ever spot, the very unspectacular rogers pass.
A long down hill then followed, only slightly interrupted by another flat tyre, no problem though Im pretty fast at fixing them now. The next bit was rolling hills, with more uphills than i expected and cared for. About 20 miles from my destination of Augusta, i planned a food stop at a restaurant on my map. It was clear from quite far away that the cafe was very closed and had been for a while. So i had a banana and carried on. Surprisingly, the final 20 miles of the day, usually the hardest, went really nicely, riding was mostly flat, so i put my music in and flew along the road. Before long i was in Augusta, had some pre dinner and headed to the camp ground. The campsite was nice, only the second camp so far that i could get my tent pegs in the ground. With a backdrop of the rocky mountains that i just travelled through. Then i headed back into town, (30 seconds walk) to get some dinner. They even had the panthers on the tv, gotta love them panthers. I headed back to camp and settled in, great falls is the aim for tomorrow.
