Word of the day is hot. I am amazed at how quickly the weather haschanges. Today was a high of 80 with a very intense sun. Everything outhere is dry, including almost all of the creeks. I can't imagine doing thissection in the warmer months. One if the biggest challenges is keeping mywater bottles full.
Yesterday I messes up my evening water resupply so I started today withabout a cup of water and the nearest water source about 18 miles away. Igot up extra early to make sure I could ride in the cooler morning hoursknowing I had virtually no water to drink.
The road leading down and into Del Rio is a barren brown landscape. Otherthan the blue sky there is no other colors to be viewed. On the other sideof the town is a national park area which i am looking forward to exploringover the next two days.
From there it is still another 450 miles to exit the state. People warnedme about how long it would take to cross Texas and they sure were right. Iam assuming that as i get closer to the west coast i will begin to run intoother riders. I saw one today as i was coming out of the grocery store butwas unable to get his attention. I am sure there are more to come
