Like riding on the Moon

Last night there was the most amazing sunset, large Western vista, something we don’t get on the East Coast.

Today turned into one of those days that reminds why I love biking, good distance-86 miles, not too much climbing, GREAT Tailwind, perfect weather. It really was an effortless journey that just makes me feel great! At the start of the ride we turned onto this road that reminded me of a spot on a New Jersey ride we do where we go through the Pine Barrens. We say that spot makes us feel like e areĀ  riding on the Moon-so desolate, well this morning we encountered a similar stretch, except it went on for 20 miles. No houses, no towns, no crops, NOTHING! I am still in awe of the vastness of the space out west. We then returned to the current normal of crops all around us. Wheat, Potatoes, Alfalfa, ENDLESS miles and miles of crops. They make the farms near home seem quaint by comparison. Now I know where all those French Fries come from.
