June 8, Day 7: Cold Springs to Bob Scott Summit, NV (57.5 miles)

We were woken up by the automatic sprinklers at 8:00am and took our time on this short day. First I tried to get BBQ chicken at 9:30am, the waitress thought I was nuts. The ride was chill and the weather warm, until we got to Austin where we did a steep climb in the scorching sun to the summit. Luckily we had a lot of tailwind and it made the descent one of the craziests yet. The uphill to Bob Scott was not bad, it is a lush campsite with lots of pine trees, chipmunks, and sun. The water is also really tasty. We later took freezing cold showers under the spigot.

Total miles this week: ~439.0
