Just a Regular Day

​This morning we left Hillsboro at 7:30, 30-degree weather, with clear skies. Of course, right off we had to climb our way over the mountain, but eventually settled in on a comfortable long stretch of rolling hills. We had some head and tail winds thru out the day but ended with riding 65 miles. 

Our route took us south. We went thru New Mexico’s agriculture area, saw a huge lake in the middle of no where, ate at a little Mexican cafe that was really yummy, and ended at our destination, Radium Springs, to find the campground was no longer open. Our only option at that point was to find a kind neighbor that would let us pitch our tent on their property and charge the girls. I chose to start with the only house that had green grass, Kentucky 31 actually, something you don’t see here much. To my surprise they immediately said yes! We set up camp, fixed our dinners, hooked the girls up and are settling in for the night.

All in all, today was an uneventful, anticlimactic day after yesterday's climb to Emory Pass. Thats going to be a hard day to beat. So here it is again😎

Tomorrow, we cross into Texas!  - When you have time - check out Hendrika's Blog
