Days 44 - 45: High Altitude

Colorado is great. I'm glad to be back in the woods again, in rolling hills away from the wind. It's surprisingly warm during the day, in the 70s, considering that the elevation is around 9000 feet.

I camped a few miles north of Breckenridge last night. It got down to freezing just before dawn, an impressive 72-degree change in temperature. My nose would hurt when it stuck outside the sleeping bag, causing me to wake up and pull it back inside the bag. Soon as I fell asleep, it would stick back out again. I need to get a smaller nose.

In the morning I rode over Hoosier Pass -11,542 feet, the highest point in the Trans-America route.

Piece of cake!
