I am closing in on 2 weeks since my arrival and like most of my spring visits, I ride a bunch and hike little so I regret not having more awesome hiking images to share. I do have a hike coming up though. Above, in the tiny town of Oracle, there is a motel with each room in its own little A frame guarded by a tree.
As usual, I spend a lot of time sitting in front of gas stations taking a break and saw a plate from Alaska. How bout that? Actually, not all that uncommon here.
My favorite places to stop are the QT's or Quik Trips. Gas ranges from $2.19-2.33 on any given day. Hey, guess what? I planned to do a Brevet but showed up on the wrong day. How does that happen? I was only going to do about 100 miles not the full 120. I called Brevet experts Andrew & Eve to find out if doing so would brand me a cheater but guess it is common to DNF these events.
Some strange road-side sculptures out here. Weather has been sunny with one day of morning rain that coincided with my only off day. Temperatures are bouncing around, several days in the low 80's and then into the low 70's, even upper 60's. Not as consistent as usual.
The day of morning rain, I visited Frys (Kroger owned) and coming out of the store the clouds were lifting. Could have done something active but chose to watch Tiger Woods.
Sorry, out of focus but I sometimes visit a restaurant...maybe 2 times a week and usually order chicken to go. Above I am coming out of "Bub's Grub" a good, southwestern style place that I enjoy. Well, climbing Mount Lemmon today (Tuesday), my first time on this trip.
