Today's big moment was crossing the Contential Divide, where east of this line all the water flows into the Atlantic and west of this line water flows into the Pacific. The climb was not too bad compared to the climb out of Bullhead City AZ. After crossing the divide I was able to get off the Interstate and was able to stay on side roads for the rest of the day. This was a welcomed change with little traffic, and yes we ended up back of Rt 66 again.
Today's ride ended in Grants NM totaling about 83 miles. Good news! The GPS application decided to send the link of today's ride map so here it is. Hopefully this will continue.
