Day 15: 92 miles from Idaho Falls, ID → Jackson, WY

Today we crossed the 1000-mile mark for the entire trip early in the day and then the Wyoming border at about 70 miles. The ride culminated in a 14-mile climb of increasing steepness up to Teton Pass at 8,431 feet, which overlooks Jackson to the east. Along the way, we encountered a strong thunderstorm from which three of us took shelter in the wood shop of a local fireman. The climb to the pass was definitely challenging, but in my memory the Day 6 ride was harder despite the statistics.
