Today we were on a route called “Hasty Highlander”, which I have renamed “Hellishly Hilly Highlander” after today’s 2120 metres of climbing in 142k. Started with a good breakfast at Greg and Joy Shikaze’s and rode for a couple of hours in light rain. Mostly gravel roads and a few atv trails with water to detour around. And lots of steep climbing. Camping beside East Jeannie Lake. Made a stove single pot meal of bulgar and quinoa, noodle soup and tin salmon. Praying that tomorrow’s forecast of rain until 2pm is wrong and that we can resupply at the Algonquin Outfitters store in 50k.
