Well, we made it over Indiana Pass and on into New Mexico, where it is hot,hot,hot! Marco and I had a very warm day yesterday, with temperatures hitting 43 degrees in the afternoon, and with very little water around.
We’re now in Grants, heading for Pie Town, which marks the start of the final map - we started out with seven in Banff.
The climbs should be lessening in size from now on, but that means that it will just keep on getting hotter as we travel further south. We’ve both had our moments of feeling that we won’t make it, but after surviving the desert, I think we are both a lot more positive now.
More soon, hopefully from Pie Town tomorrow……..more ...
