Day 6 Cottonwood Pass

14 mile climb with 3000 feet of gain. On dirt. 12,126 feet. This is
Cottonwood Pass.

My favorite day so far. No mistake about this climb, it was up a
mountain. This is a road that the likes of Horner, Levi, and Lance
have recently trained on.

The flatlanders road it well. I found my tempo early and kept it
rolling until the top. I felt really really good. Not a single rider
passed me.

Riders are still coming in. They are saying there was rain and hail on
the mountain. They are cold and shakey.

The flatlanders are warm and cozy. We already had our 5$ footlongs.

Independence Pass is "all" that is left.
