54 miles minimal suffering!
Today was really straightforward, one large hill out of the place near Cimarron and the rest was pretty flat.
We passed the lovely reservoir you see above about lunch time. The views were truly lovely.
In truth my personal goal for the day was to get to Parlin as soon as possible so I could get everything done and be in bed for 2000 latest. We have a massive climb over a scary place called Monarch Pass tomorrow.
The landscape has changed once again, gone are the abundant conifers the hills are bare here, farming has stripped the land of its trees and now we see cattle more and more.
Parlin is small and peaceful. A great place to relax before a tough day tomorrow.
