Today we left Casa Grande and rode 63 miles to Catalina State Park in Oro Valley AZ. The scenery was stunning. Most of the morning we headed towards Picacho Peak. There was some locally grown Pima cotton on the side of the road:
The depth and detail of the mountains just doesn’t capture in a photo. It is so fun to see a shape on the horizon and pedal for 2-3 hours and get up right next to it and see the details.
The sag stop was at a travel plaza with snacks and gifts and gourmet treats. This is NOT a joke.
The season and/or the heavy rain had things popping.
From the second sag stop it was a great ride toward the Catalina mountains and a bike path with blooms everywhere.
This lonely little water tower was a leg stretch break. It has a stories to tell I bet.
Did you know they did a second biosphere ? Is that a good virus hunker place ? We are continuing East self contained spending almost all time outside and are healthy. Anyone with a symptom is taken for a check. Fresh air sunshine and lots of sanitizer.
How about this blooming desert !!! Terry Lisa recently passed too soon is with me every mile in spirit.
The bike path to the camp was breathtaking.
The campground is right next to the mountains with trails and views everywhere. Today I hope to hike to the waterfall, after a Chiro visit and massage.
Hey this mileage is courtesy of Dr C and Ms Dana, my structural engineers back home.
Ann the chef continues to provide a feast all day. Last night was Middle Eastern with ice cream sundaes with a 5 gallon bucket of real whipped cream. Today a rest day is rumored to be over the top. I am posting this a bit late there is very little signal here.
Life is good however I will pass on the scorpion candy. This post has taken 14 hours to upload sooooo here is a sample of brunch. No worries lunch is in 2 hours.
All is well here, love to all, Thank you for following.
