We had 3 climbs today through what I thought were the prettiest parts of the 50 so far: Pancake Summit (6,521′), Little Antelope Summit (7,438′), and Robinson Pass (7,588′). The descent from Little Antelope was extremely beautiful, winding between upturned compressed rocks the whole way down before coming around the Butte Mountains. After Robinson we fought some crazy headwind to get to Ely, where we were welcomed by disgruntled honking rednecks. We’re camping at the KOA just out of town with a group of 5 cyclist we met today. They’re also going across the country but with a support vehicle. Two of them are turning 70!
