Three summits in one day
Sumpter, Tipton, Dixie -- done. Three passes in 69 miles -- done. This one felt so good. Possibly we were powered by the all-you-can-eat salad bar we cleared out the day before, or maybe it was the woman who would not let us fill up our water bottles at her gas station unless we bought something (and she was the only store around for 50 miles).
5,082, 5,124 and 5,277 feet and every time we got to the summit of each I thought to myself, “Really? That’s it?”
