After our long day of riding, we had hills, rain, and some headwinds. The trip was still perfect. Everyone was in great spirits despite the added minor challenges. We were all well-fed and entertained by each others' and our own company, and had some great riding in between.
I was able to visit with my family very briefly before I packed up my munchkins and started the arduous trek back to Sacramento. The boys were great travelers, as usual, and I had some help driving back from my cousin. Still, the 12-hour day in the car was exhausting. It's wonderful to be home but it will take a few days to recover from all the adventures we've had over the last few months.
