Crows were our before-dawn alarm clock which made for a very early start.
Today a couple of the hills were too steep for me to ride and I had to walk to the top. The downhills get you up to 40 mph is a very short distance. There are no shoulders. For the most part, vehicles have been very courteous, slowly following us to the top of a hill before they try to pass. "Limited-signt distance" is how the AC route describes it.
However, today there were many high-speed logging trucks on the road and we chose safety over taking chances and drove until we found a good wide shoulder for the last 18 miles into Farmington.
We camped at St Joe State Park, about 7 miles NW of town.
