Day Two:Woodbury Resort to Nakusp: 110km

Day Two

Monday, July 20th - Woodbury Resort to Nakusp (Hot Springs)
110 km/68 miles
Today I felt like I was adapting to both the climbing and the heat. We had some nasty head wind to keep things interesting, but the scenery here is so phenomenal that nothing can lessen the awesomeness if the riding. We had another ferry ride today as well, but this time we didn't have to wait long which was nice. There were two decent climbs today, I am feeling better climbing and trying to get braver on the decents, but I still use my brakes too much. The last 30km I rode with the two other GP ladies on the tour. We had a speedy little pace line going and the kms just flew by! It was a fun way to end the ride.
Our overnight is in Nakusp. It is beautiful here, a little mountain town with a clear blue lake and a white sandy beach. We took a dip after setting up camp and it was incredibly refreshing. It is soo hot here!
Another early night to bed, and an early wake up tomorrow. Life us goood.

Sounds awesome, Amber! Enjoy! :)

P.S. I'll have to ask you about the "Taj Mahal" tent...we're in the market for camping gear. :)
