Secondly the place we were aiming for is a ghost town and there is nothing there - no food, no camping, not even a motel, so we have to ride 150kms to Golden. Normally 150kms is achievable on a flat day, but throw in a 1525 metre pass and it is quite an ask. It normally takes about 4 and 1/2 hours to climb a big pass so that is half the day gone just doing that. We will have to get up very early to achieve this.
I really hope the sun shines tomorrow, as the scenery is supposed to be spectacular. It is amazing British Columbia hasn't washed away into the sea with all the rain they get here. Oh well I have washed everything including my shoes, and mended torn clothing and Niel has fixed his Primus cooker - it has been a day of domestic chores.
