Today’s Mileage: 205 miles

Total Trip Mileage so far: 5459 miles

I am listening to:  Bob Seger, Arlo Guthrie, Bob Dylan


I found the loneliest highway (of this trip anyway), it is Highway 93 between Ely and Pioche – nothing on that road – there is a sign at the beginning of that section that says “80 miles to next gas” – road and wind – that pretty much sums it up until you get to the small town of Pioche – bought gas…  Pretty nice road out of town though and the rest of the ride to Cedar City is pleasant but not extraordinary.

Got an email from Pat as he is making his way back the long way round from Canada – I have been updating him on my ride and seems that we are to cross paths in Cedar City – a happy accident.  We will have dinner and compare notes for our rides since we split at Kalispell.  We also find a funny sign in town on the way to dinner.
