Day 1 The Sequel

I decided to make this a sequel to last October's Utah ride because...


except for the bike...


the first 1.5 days...


will be almost identical.


With a 3 day weekend ahead I race home from work on Friday to get this ride started. By leaving after work I have 4 days to ride.


This landmark on the Navajo Nation is named the Elephant's Feet.


This silo stores coal from the Black Mesa Mine. The coal is transported from here by electric freight train to a power plant. I stop near the tracks off the US160 near Kayenta to layer up for the cool night ride...


and to watch the Arizona Sunset.




I make it to the Goosenecks of the San Juan State Park in Utah, 334 miles from Phoenix, at 9PM.
