Day 32

June 26, 2017

Today is all about one 12-mile hill climb. It’s long. It’s hot. It’s slow. And it’s painful. Totally different from the McKenzie Pass experience. I think I simply do better with snow than I do with sun.


The climb takes me 5 hours. Only 5 cars pass me by. 4 stop. Only 2 have any water. It’s tough. I should have sooo left earlier. And not spent the entire (cool) morning hanging at a café in White Bird. And then an hour surfing the web at the local library… When will I learn? In the meantime, I am paying for my sins and I am paying hard for them! The sun keeps bothering and pestering me all day long.


I make it to the top at around 5pm. It’s then and there that I decide I will not be able to make it beyond Grangeville and so I contact some local WarmShowers hosts. It’s Reyna who responds immediately and invites me over to stay at hers. Little do I know that I am about to meet my soul sister in this little town in Idaho and that the time we’re about to have, will be epic.
