Toughest miles of the entire trip with 12 miles of down hill. My stubbornness was either an asset or a liability today. Yes I made it in – good. Yes I am now totally broken physically – I can not walk. My doctor who I talked with on the telephone has two possible diagnoses. One – a bruised shin resulting in a subsurface hematoma that is irritated by walking – painful, but not a huge deal.

Double damn.
Oh yea, the scenery was nice when I looked up.
