Profile and statistics (absolute altitude is wrong). 

The day started with a moderate climb up to Bozeman Pass (El. 5,750).  We then had a steady descent for the rest of the day.  Some favorable tailwinds really boosted the average speed today.  Temperatures rose from the 60s in the morning to over 104 by the end of the day!
