It was a good climb. We took the difficult trail, which might have been a mistake. But, after twenty minutes of rocks and roots and steep stairs, we were staring down at Lake Superior. It was a gorgeous day.
The mechanic called as we were descending. It wasn't good news. Over two thousand dollars in repairs. Of course, I told him to just complete the oil change. I've had enough of dealerships. I'm taking my car to a local mechanic tomorrow. The difference: $60 per hour versus $180 per hour.
