Starlight and Snakes
After walking a short ways to a picnic table illuminated by a street light, I added our recent exploits to my notebook. The air was cold and so when I got back to our site, I decided to go back to bed to warm up in my mummy bag which still retained some of my body heat. I must have fallen asleep for a couple of hours because when I got up, Roy was packed and ready to go which was a complete reversal from our usual routine which usually saw me tapping my fingers as I waited for my non-morning-person-cycling-buddy to get going.
We made final adjustments to our loads and then said goodbye to all of the neighbours we had met since arriving at the camp. While we rode out, a biplane was catching everyone's attention as it swooped low between the valley walls. With today being the Saturday of the Labour Day weekend, we speculated that the pilot was practising for Monday's celebrations.
