Day 4 The Great Basin

Day 4 Ukhia State Park to Alturas California 550km 8.0 hours
I got rolling really early to get a good run in today. Most of the day was like a huge flashback to my Mobius 9 trip.

I rode through the vast desert of the Great Basin in Oregon. Unlike the Mobius trip, this was all pavement. The wind was ever present all day and a headwind too. Iím exhausted after fighting it for 8 hours. Although the roads are straight and sometimes boring, I enjoyed the day as always.

Hmmm....looking like I could lose a few lbs up front. Central America should fix that
Tonight Iím in the Hacienda Hotel in Alturas California

Road side repair (Actually in a Rite Aid parking lot)

Tomorrow Reno and Lake Tahoe
