Day 14 - 99 miles - Brooks Lake Lodge to Pinedale
19 easy miles downhill. Then two big climbs and a wonderful headwind till town.
Not too many photos, I was in a hurry(and made great time) into Pinedale to get the spoke fixed. I didn't' have high hopes for the bike shop since it was in a hardware store. Not much to write or show. I got pissed around midday. Headwinds are the pits. I stopped in a little cafe for a milkshake and ate my "Big Colossal" bar and hauled ass into Pinedale. It was a big city, fresh with money from oil and gas exploration, a boom town for sure. New spoke, but no 9 speed chains. We found a place that had cabins and went with that(not cheap but nice). Had a big Chinese meal and stocked up for the next day.
