My plastic box panniers have been holding up well. I think they’re doing a good job- this morning I woke up with little turds on top. Whoever left them was unable to get to my loaf of bread.
Shortly after this was Cape Sebastian, which kind of kicked my ass. The worst part was that the top didn’t even have a good view. It had a really steep road leading up to an alleged viewpoint, but it was so steep that I left my bike at the bottom to go check it out. Nothing worth mentioning was up there! Maybe with more walking there was, but it wasn’t clear how far or what change in altitude. Oh well.
Is a cool rock, right?
This bridge was freaky! Looking down at the creek was surreal. It was a very tall bridge, but not very long and I couldn’t see its structure at all. There was a path to get to a point to view it, but as far as I could tell it went down to the creek bed first. I wasn’t up for a 354 foot climb back up after such a long day, so I googled this one:
Kind of glad I didn’t see that one before going over it!!
Tomorrow I’m taking it slow, since I am about 30 miles from Crescent City, and I can’t pass it until I pick up my mail on Friday. I guess I’ll be looking to see how close I can camp for $5 or less, and probably cooking my next few meals. I couldn’t resist a burger and beer tonight. I’m glad I didn’t, but my wallet might have a different opinion.
