Day 905: Borrego Springs, Day 3

This morning we tested the GoPro mount for M’s quadcopter that we 3D printed at the library yesterday.  It seems to work pretty well:

I went out for a bike ride, passing by our campsite from 2014 and 2015 along the way.  Here’s what it looked like in 2015:

…And today.  We had the kids scatter the rocks before we left last time:

This ride is called “Around the Block”, which I last rode with John on Day 191.  The ride climbs over three passes, the toughest being Montezuma Grade, a 3500-foot vertical climb over 11 miles which crosses the mountain range in the distance:

After summiting Montezuma Grade, I refilled my water bottles in Ranchita and descended some before climbing up over Teofulio Summit:

After a long descent, the final climb is a comparatively short but steep 300 feet of vertical to Yaqui Pass:

I arrived home exhausted.

Good Shabbos from Borrego Springs!
