Day 390 – Epic climb into Chisos Basin
Today I got up at 4 am to start for the 23 mile/1300′ elev. gain ride to Panther Junction and then another 6 mile/2000′ and segment into Chisos Basin and the campground.
To put it mildly – it was a challenge.
Camp host Ted gave me a round of applause as I passed him on the way to my site. Many people I ran into noticed that I was very slowly making my way up the mountain. Ha ha.
All worth it!
