Day 3

Day 3 began with a faceful of 6am sunlight through the mesh of my tent. One good thing about camping, it's hard to oversleep.

Then, time to lube the chain. Noticing also that it was too tight, I got out the tools, loosened the rear axle net and adjusted the chain. I didn't like re-tightening the axle nut without a torque wrench, but that's life on the road.



Here is my route for the day. Jerome, Sedona, Payson and beyond for more camping!

But first, a stop at the nearest Starbucks in Prescott to get some work done, as well as catching up on email and ride reporting:



A couple of pics approaching Jerome:





Jerome is pretty much a tourist destination, and there were bunches of motorcycles. I didn't care to add to all that, but stopped just past the town to take a few more pics.


Looking back at Jerome









Approaching Sedona, I stop at a scenic overlook and chat with a fellow rider:



He obligingly takes my picture:



Here's a pic from the other side of Sedona:



The ride onward to Payson was very pretty, with many sweepers, hills, twisties and beautiful scenery. Finally I arrive at my destination without incident and set up camp.



Darkness and the chilly night air eventually put an end to my time on the computer at the campsite table, and a camp fire then provides warmth and time for meditation.
