320 Miles to Go! In California!

The end is insight!  Oh, what a journey this has been.  These last miles are across the Mojave Desert–in June.  It is killer hot.  Had a big climb, today, from Kingman over Sitgreaves pass at 3550 ft then significantly down hill into Ca.  We starting riding at 6a and had to call it quits by 1p, when temperatures reach near 110 deg F.  For safety reasons we quit riding without completing the last 8 miles into Needles.  Because of the heat we are also evaluating potentially portaging over the remaining portion of the Mojave Desert.  We’ll make that decision in the next couple of days.

Nonetheless, early in the morning the desert was beautiful and the scenery spectacular.
