Yesterday we rolled across another state line. And as soon as we did, road conditions changed to chip sealed highways with no shoulders.
Because of this, our feet numbed, hands too at times. And at one point Tim says. ‘Stupid road’. Haha. It was the first time I heard him not happy. His little behind was getting torn apart from the bumpage and he was in pain
The views were great, big mtns in the distance w rolling hills of golden grass around us.
We landed in Silver City new Mexico which is just beyond the contential divide. Right around 6,230ft of elevation.
We’ve been climbing since we left Phoenix and our legs are starting to feel it. There have been moments we’ve both been out of the saddle climbing for minutes at a time! Yay for bikes without a small chain ring.
Great thing about being at higher elevation…..more trees! We’re back in the pines and feel much more at home than with those cacti.
