After the long ride yesterday, we got a late start today. Not on the road until 7 am. We thpought the last of the loneliest road was behind us,. We were wrong.
Today the sun was out in full force. Temps went over 100 today. No rain though.
Spotted an orchard of turbines in the wind farm.....
Da'mit thinks Americans are silly. She doesn't understand why some one would throw a good pair of shoes up into a tree. I didn't have an answer for her. She said there must be a lot of Americans walking around barefooted.
The tree of shoes..... near Hinckley, Utah.
Crossing Utah we saw some spectacular scenery, full of color... HOT colors, not watercolors for sure.
Some trees have dried up waiting for rain.
Reaching Green River, UT, we were exhausted from the heat. Da'mit was suffering from the heat too, not running smoothly by the end of the day. In the mornings, she is fine, but by hot afternoon, she wilts. Might be gasoline vaporizing in the carbs from the heat.
Every so often, all day long, we stopped to re-wet scarfs, shirt and helmet liner. Even hot water will cool you when it evaporates on the skin. Plus we drank lots of water.
Tomorrow we turn south to Moab. Have never seen that part of our country. They tell us it is fantastic.
The forecast is for rain. If it is as hot tomorrow as it was today, rain might be a welcome respite.
Nite Da'mit, but she can't hear, is sound asleep.
