I am over the Rocky Mountains! I climbed enough to cross the contenental divide yesterday riding up Going to the
Sun Road. I met Dan from Pennsylvania before Marias Pass (5215 feet). We chatted for a while and met again at Brownies Hostel in East Glacier. I almost camped at the pass, but it started raining and the wind was really howling.
At the beginning of the climb the grade was almost 15 percent. I was concerned about being able to make it over. After that first “hill,” the grades was more moderate and I made it over the top. The rain and wind pushed me downhill to East Glacier.
It has rained part of everyday for more than a week. Tomorrow is supposed to be dry at least after I get out of East Glacier.
