Late start today (8:00) because it was a shorter, relatively easy ride. Rode through some basically flat and open country - telephone poles the only relative of a tree in sight. You could see forever. Rode alongside a burned area for several miles where the ground was just black! Worrisome shades of Colorado.
The day started cool and ended quite warm, foreshadowing days ahead. We got in early and were able to enjoy time by the pool, and attend a clinic on tricks of the trade for changing a flat. We also had time to slip around Walmart in our cleats to buy bandanas to put ice in and wrap around our necks to help with the heat.
Tomorrow is a 97 mile day so, breakfast at 5:30 and departure between 6:00 and 6:15. Supposed to be in the 90's - cool compared with Colorado's three digit temperatures and fires.
Total Miles: 697
Tomorrow: Twin Falls
