Well, it looks like our luck ran out. Maybe.
We had one last pass to cross today, and managed to make it all the way to the top before the rain came. We barreled down off the pass in pouring, freezing cold rain – not pleasant at all.
The good news is that the rain let up very quickly, so we mostly pedaled in a drizzle – which isn’t nearly as bad as a pouring rain.
We toyed with the idea of going for it and getting to Fort Nelson today, but in the end made the decision to bail. We headed back into the forest and stumbled into the most heavily mosquito-infested area we’ve seen since the Dalton.
The four of us entered into fast-forward mode and got the tent set up in record time so we could take refuge from the voracious beasts.
