While you can not see where the road twists and turns above you, as you look back down, a broad expanse of the road opens and the views are of course, spectacular. In the above image, this is going down the other side but gives you an idea of the view. At mile 8, I looked at the computer and thought #@#%^&# it, I'm not going to make my time with still 4 freakin miles to go and in my weakened state, became rather despondent. then....what's this.....I recognize this section and it is close to the top......crossed a cattle guard, hit a steep slope where someone had chalked, "u're almost there", and WOW, reached the top, hit the stop button on the computer and had smashed my previous best time. That felt really good. I concluded that upon my return to Ohio, Flyin T will not drop me for at least a month or two.
