There is something magical about long loop bile rides in the wilderness backcountry.
I’m not gonna lie – the 2,500ft climb nearly 14 miles to the 9,600ft summit today was harder than I was expecting.
That said, propelled by stunning views, a solid Spotify playlist, and the promise of a killer descent, it wasn’t too hard making peace with mountains on their terms, in their turf.
Finally, the summit was reached and the eight miles descending back to the truck made all the uphill suffering totally worth the effort.
