Higher and Higher

Before crossing over into Fukushima prefecture, Don and I offered a prayer to the border gods for a smooth crossing. Our karma was perhaps compromised, for shortly thereafter the gradient soon became incredibly steep. Don found that a three-speed lacked sufficient gearing for such mountainous terrain; I myself nearly had to walk my Cinelli road bike up the steepest sections of road.
