Day 15 - Idaho Falls to Jackson

About 91 miles and 6,100 feet of climbing.

Today we say goodbye to Idaho and hello to Wyoming.

One of the tour guides mentioned that this is the TOUGHEST day on the tour.  We had two tough climbs, but at about the 75 mile mark, the 2.5 mile climb at a 10% grade started.  And it just seemed like it never ended.  It took us about an hour to make the climb.  I think the altitude was affecting my performance.  My heart was beating very fast; the only way to control it was for me to pull over and wait a few moments.

This was the first climb, the EASY climb (lol).
