We (Sarah squared, Elena and Jill) lead the group onto the BRP at about 645 this morning. It wouldn't have been too chilly if it weren't for the wind! That dang convection! Two of the three miles on the parkway were uphill,with a lovely downhill finish. We got to see some very pretty stars and watched the pretty sunrise and the clouds turn pretty colors (pink is pretty). Overall, we can just remember the wind haha. Lookin' forward to leg number 9!
