We made an absolute speed run across A-Cross Rd. I spent the last 10 miles looking at a flashing low-fuel light. The extra gallon on the rack would just get me back over 4-Peaks and might let the bike sputter to a gas station. Slowred hadn't hit reserve yet on the Honda, but just to avoid any unpleasant walks in the dark we both topped off on the east side of 4-Peaks.

We fought the setting sun and dust up and over 4-Peaks. That is one slow ride when you're blind and riding by braille. As the sun dropped, our speed picked up.



Not bad for one handed riding on a bumpy road.



Looking back at 4-Peaks with the red hue of the setting sun.



A few clouds moved in to make for a more spectacular sunset.



More sunset color.



One more shot of 4-Peaks.



We're really going to have to find a ride to a remote location with a restaurant that is open during the week!
