Wow... What a run. You got some great pictures too. Hey, Leor, thanks for the advice on Sequoia too - I meant to thank you for the detailed email. We enjoyed the route quite a bit. I don't think you went there, but the redwood grove just beyond redwood valley was also quite amazing - more than I expected. I know you like the high peaks, though!
this is the route! I don't about 9K vertical feet and 38 mi, at altitude. definitely need to do a few segments to try it out. thx for the pointers
