Things I learned today in the Alps

Today’s learnings: the Alps can still be cold and windy in the spring, kilometers are still pretty long (don’t think of them as baby miles or you’ll be disappointed when you’re in a hurry), and arm warmers can become calf warmers in a pinch (but they may not be very good arm warmers after that).

8 1/2 hours, 160k, 2000m climbing. Oof.
