As we reached the top of the days last climb, a vehicle pulled up along side us. A shirtless man with missing teeth looked at us and asked concernedly, would y'all like a beer? As he got out of the car, he apologized for his wet pants and handed us three ice cold Bud Light Platinums. It's times like these that I truly appreciate the South.

Big Kahuna on the Cascades of the Nantahala. Theres something about the Cascades, maybe it's the proximity to the road, the crowd of onlookers, or maybe that it only runs a handful of times each year that inspires under-gunned kayakers to give it the ole college try. Whatever the inspiration, it left me at the bottom, drinking a bootie beer with half a paddle.

And our trusty steeds. 1 - Surly Krampus kitted with @ovejanegrabikepacking goodies. 2 - The classic Salsa El Mar donned with some fancy I9 shoes. 3 - Trek Stache, the trail ready bikepacking rig.

I'm afraid to report that the trails around Northwest Georgia aren't worth visiting. The singletrack definitely isn't awesome, the gravel roads aren't plentiful, and the scenery's not worth but a glance. Y'all should ride the Front Range instead. Jayjoshing

The Wonderland Trail of Mt Rainier. Only just a morning we spent hiking around the reflection lakes, one day I hope to see the trail in its entirety.

The bearded wonder, @michaelcarnrike. Making everything look too damn easy, from street, to dirt jumps, to the trail.

Being able to mountain bike year round sure is sweet. Summer even looks bearable from this photo. Not pictured: 90 degree heat, humidity, and a crotch full of chiggers.

Happy to share the @camp.sorba story with Eskapee. Check the link in my bio. . . The ‘Deep South’ isn’t quite known for its mountain biking. Don’t get me wrong, quality trails are popping up here and there but it’s nothing like the wild west, with its plethora of public land and endless ribbons of singletrack. Here in the south, where public land is as uncommon as fat-free butter, we have to fight for our trails.

A seemingly serene camp. Just before we were kicked out by a herd of cattle, donkey, and their requisite human caretaker.

Our last pass. Punta Olimpica has been described as the granddaddy of Andes passes, standing just over 16,000'. The majority of which is now paved, it leads to a tunnel which burrows through the mountain side. The top portion, which passes over the tunnel has been left in its original state, unmaintained. Now covered in boulders left from landslides and piles of snow left from the last storm. Here @hbirdd8 passes through the notch at the very top.

Our last camp was easily the most scenic. Nestled on a boulder strewn ridge at 15,000 feet. The road on one side and the glacier-strewn peak of Ulta on the other. This abandoned stone house that is now used as a lookout reminded me much of the fire lookouts in the Cascades where Kerouac spent his time cold and alone but inspired nonetheless to write his novels.

|| Among the Cordillera Blanca || . . Pupash, the second and shortest pass on the route, was built at the beginning of the century. Without a doubt it was the quietest road on the route, we quite enjoyed it. One of the many reasons we bikepack instead of road tour is the lack of traffic, which tends to offer a more peaceful and intimate experience with the surroundings.

|| Among the Cordillera Blanca || . . The streets of Huaraz, although brimming with life, are tranquil compared to those of Lima. Huaraz is the staging point for those looking to explore the storied range of the Cordillera Blanca. Filled with ceviche stands, street markets, and plenty of stray pups.
