After a very heavy thunderstorm last night we woke up to a very soggy campsite. We started the day with two modest ascents up to the Great Divide then a massive ten mile descent to Old Faithful.
It fires off roughly every 96 minutes and I luckily arrived to join the crowds ten minutes before lift off. The heavens then opened and the last 30 miles of the day on a very busy road were unpleasant to say the least. It was so cold that I could not turn on my Dell to take photographs as it operates by a heat sensitive screen.
Great thing about the weather here though is that when it strikes it tends to be ferocious but when it stops the sun comes out and you dry off very quickly.
Unfortunately Dolo had a spot of bother with the weather today. She was badly affected by the cold, fell off her bike, got disorientated and was delivered to the campsite by ambulance.
However she swiftly recovered and didn't miss her regular Mcdonalds ice cream fix, after a telling off from our leader about the importance of wearing watetproofs when it's cold and raining.
