Since our route takes us West, the sun was always either in our eyes from the South (not climbing high enough for the visor to be of any use), or behind mountains, like in the photos above. It's amazing to think that if you build North of mountains, you could end up with months of no direct sunlight each winter... Duly noted.
Since it was a Christmas gift shopping trip as much as a grocery/supply shopping trip, I don't have too many photos. I can tell you that it was exhausting, not only the actual trip, but also the prep. Looking through the cupboard to see what all we needed, coming up with meal ideas, looking at the ingredients, making a shopping list based on that. And then finding all those items at the stores! Well, let's just say that I did not get the full grocery list... And by the time we were done, I really didn't care, either.
