This morning is was rig maintenance time. Minor stuff: topping off fluids, adjusting cables, installing new spark plugs. Finally on the road by 10:30 am.
We stopped at a roadside pull-off, where we met a Park Ranger from Lithuanian named Vida. She suggested we visit the Black Canyon National Park. So we rode the eight miles up to the park to discover tere is a $115 entry fee. Hmmm, fifteen bucks to snap a photo of a dry ditch..... no thanks.
The rest of the ride was fighting a strong wind blowing across a dry landscape. Fnally reached Grand Junction for the night. Didn't ride many miles today as the temp was over 100 degrees. Tomorrow we cross into Utah and start riding earlier in the morning to avoid riding in the heat of the day.
