Day 25--72 Miles 

Yow today was brutal. Not just over my daily limit but climbing over 2000 feet to get over Union Pass (9210 feet) took every bit of all I had, and then some more. The scenery throughout the day had many beautiful moments and by the time I got to the campground, with dusk approaching, I was truly spent. It seems I've lost Chip and have been intermittently riding with 2 guys from Phoenix which helps the Harder parts of the daily mileage a bit. It's nice to know that I'm not the only one who, after 60 miles or so, feels as though my legs almost stop working altogether. Like my AT hike I'm reminded that there seems to always be just a little more after you feel like there isn't anything left. Grateful for the campground tonight and well water to pump.
