Making Tracks

I don't have much more asphalt planned for today.

I was nearing hypothermia so stopped to warm up.

The highway to Page, AZ cuts through this gap in the rocks...

I've always noticed the interesting sand dune next to the gap.

I trudge uphill to warm up and check out the dune.

Daddy Long Legs (KTM 990 Length Legs)

I caught an unusual sight this morning. Bobcat roadkill. Now I find evidence a bobcat has been patrolling this dune.

I'm 3 hours from home when I realize I'm missing something. My fully loaded Camelback is sitting in the garage at home!
I guess I can make do without the extra water in this cool weather. I had almost packed camera lenses in it. Glad I didn't.
I can probably go without the extra memory cards and the bear spray, but I have hiking plans
for this trip and need something to carry water, snacks, and camera gear.

I make a quick stop in Page and find a cheap backpack that barely fits inside the panniers.
