We join the “Crazy People” to ride 10 extra miles and go unsupported all day for the sole purpose of climbing Mt. Erie – 850 feet in 1.5 miles at its worst section (that’s an average of 10.5% grade and spots pushing 30-40%!!!) Then we take a
ferry and find an awesome host in Port Townsend.
Since we climbed above the clouds, I dedicated to all the people I could find in the sky: Poppop, Paul, and Jan, our host’s mother.
Edit (8.19.2013): Here is what a local Seattle blogger had to say about Mt. Erie.
