84 miles to Conchas Lake today, including 3,222 of ascent. We packed up camp in Las Vegas, on the road about 7:30. The landscape has totally changed.
We stopped for lunch with 30 miles left and had tuna, sardines, and anchovies. We had a nasty head/cross wind the entire ride which definitely slows us down.
Then we got to camp… A few minutes after arriving, it poured. Sergio rode another 10 miles for water because the spicket tastes like sewer (literally). We both chugged water when we arrived and now we likely need new water bottles too as they also smell like sewer.
We dried out the tent with clothes we’re not planning to wear tomorrow. Hopefully no more rain this evening.
