Beautiful AZ Canyon

Pardon our lacking blog updates. We're in the middle of a stretch between Albuquerque, NM and Phoenix, AZ. The distance between these two cities is about four hundred miles. We decided that instead of doing six days of our normal sixty to eighty mile days, and being forced to camp in the freezing cold in the middle of the desert, we would try to do four consecutive days of one hundred miles. It's tiring, and we have to ride all day, so our motivation to blog has been lacking. Please excuse our digital laziness. We are, however, half way through! We've now ridden two consecutive one hundred mile days and we have two more to go. Then we'll be in Phoenix! Wish us luck.

We passed through Globe, and dominated it.

I hope you're going through

I hope you're going through Payson and not through Globe. There's a couple of fairly memorable hills on 87 south of Payson, but, there's a couple of real killers on 60 between ShowLow and Globe.
