It took the whole Sufjan Stevens 'Come on feel the Illinoise' c.d. to get to the top, or roughly one hour and 10 minutes. Then it took 3 Sole 'Mans bestfriend' songs to come down, or roughly 10 minutes.
I haven't rode my bike for a while now and by the time I made it to Virginia City I puked out all of my breakfast. Puking is so releiving. Orgasmic some would say. And the best part of the whole ride was seeing the 10 wild horses grazing along the HWY near the top.
