This is Rogers Pass, the toughest bit of the Rockies. It wasn’t that steep, but the hill was very long. I kept thinking I’d got to the top. There’d be a small downhill section and I’d think I’ve done it, I’ve got through Rogers Pass… but then it would start going up again.
Just been to the Banff hot springs – like sitting in a warm bath that smells of sulphur, and has other people in it. My legs feel a lot better now.
