What a day! We spent a huge chunk of it on historic Route 66! We climbed a bit in the morning but descended the rest of the day! Nearly 3,000 ft!

We passed through an insane little town called Oatman. It had wild donkeys roaming all over! There was a fake shoot out! And finally a massive descent into the Mohave valley! I could see Arizona, the mountains of Nevada and California all from one point!

The heat hit us like a wall. The temperature sky rocketed to 108 degrees at the base of the mountain! Thank god for air conditioning! After cleaning up and eating soooo much pizza, we watched tangled (or in my case slept through tangled).

We weighed our duffel bags and averaged our teams together for tonight’s Olympic event! We placed second!!
