|The inversion I wanted to get out of. Gray and 15 degrees in town, sunny and 30 degrees up top.|

Despite the poor planning, what I got to experience was some great North facing snow, my body hitting complete exhaustion and a beautiful sunset while all avoiding the inversion that we currently have in town. It was not until I started hiking up the 2000 ft ascent of Glory that I really hit the wall though. This season I haven't done anything like this and was more into the "one and done" type of riding. My endurance needs a lot of work if I plan on doing what I want to do this season.

|That straight line was a glitch, I hitch-hiked back to my car and got picked up by a guy in a Porche 911, with a ski rack. Obviously the highlight of the day.|
