That's the leftover BMW Vario rack the bike originally came with. I find they are handy for mounting the Giantloop and my usual soft day bag... also cameras!!!
Day 2 started perfectly, great weather and the start of some twisty roads. I was excited because I had been watching the elevation climb on my GPS but hadn't seen any mountains until now. I was still taking back roads instead of major highways so I traveled through several interesting small towns... this one kinda looks like a ghost town!
I needed gas for the next leg because I wasn't sure the road would be open all the way. I had to take a picture of the name of the store, not every day you meet another Oliver
The fun begins, winding through the forest a secluded road became my red carpet to the mountains. The cool part about this road is the only way out is over a dirt pass of unknown difficulty!
