After rising out of Wildrose Canyon, Wildrose Road crosses a plateau called Harrisburg Flats
After all the natural-rock beauty on the way up Wildrose Canyon, I feel somewhat uninspired by this wide-open plateau.
However, my sore knee is happy that I've reached flatter land. It's hurting more than on previous days, despite the many breaks that I've given it on the way up the hill.
I've ridden almost 12 miles so far today and climbed 3000 feet (I'm at 5000 feet now). It's time to choose a final destination for the day with a finite distance; I can't be indecisive forever.
I could ride another mile and a half to Emigrant Pass and see what the view is like from there, but the sign to Aguereberry Point wins my interest. It's "only" six more miles to Aguereberry Point.
I've only seen a few cars on the way up Wildrose Road.
