Started with about a 15 mile 6-7% climb almost all on I-8. Good shoulder. OK ride. Still near top.
Got to our campground at about 3:30. The campground was closed. Called USFS and were told there was another campground fairly close. We backtracked for one mile and were told that we needed to go 2 miles on Kitchen Creek Rd. We didn’t know it was a very steep climb (with a couple of fast downhills that will be climbs tomorrow) and more than twice as far as we were told. $10 for pit toilets and a table.
It’s cold now and will get into the 30s. Snowed here last week. Talked earlier to cyclists who were stuck near here for 3 days in the snow.
Last night of tour!
