Thought I was almost there. Guess not!

The above photo was taken at about 80 minutes into my trek for the summit. I ended up throwing in the towel at about 2 hours and 10 minutes. If I had brought a power bar or something to eat, I probably could have made it to the top. I have found that it makes a big difference when you add some fuel every hour or so on these long rides.
