fauxd: a meal that upon time of consumption seems to be the best meal ever while the consumer simultaneously realizes it is, in fact, probably not the best meal s/he has eaten. Fauxd.
Courtney provided us with the best coffee we've had to date along with oranges from down the road and sandwiches for the road. A photo-op, a fond farewell, and we were back on the road. Today was a relatively short day at ~30 miles, which attests to the difficulty of our climbs as the Sierra Nevadas continue to loom. Cooks Station served as our end point for the day and we settled into burritos that were fauxd at its very finest. Tired from the exertion of the first several days and with the pass to conquer tomorrow, we went to bed early to ensure enough sleep.
Short and steep as promised,
