"Cody's Legs Must Hurt" Pictures

Cody texted me today that he had crossed the Edmund Pettus bridge (scene of a bloody attack against civil rights protesters marching from Selma to Montgomery). He is now doing the 54 mile trek that the civil rights marchers eventually made. They only averaged 10 miles a day, due to their large numbers, so let's hope Cody does better mileage than that!

The pictures I'm posting tonight are pictures that made me think, "Ouch!" There was some major climbing there at one point, as well as daily trudging along.
This sign had to be a little discouraging!

Beautiful scenery, though!

This is when he still had his stroller. I'm sure glad a semi didn't come around that curve!

Starting at sea level, here he is now at 8,650 ft.

Mountain Mercantile in Cloudcroft! (Site of some pretty good pies, I've been told!)

I can imagine these stretches were no fun on the knees.

Shredded sneakers!
