The weather was a bit cooler and overcast for a couple days resulting in unusually foggy mornings and wet ground. It would take nearly a week of sunshine to dry everything out after the few days of rain. I camped up on Grapevine Hills Rd andenjoyed one of the most spectacular sunsets of the trip. It began as a yellow orb below the cloud cover and illuminated the clouds in various colors through the strata up to the dark blue above.
In May 2014 I quit my job to ride a Honda Ruckus over 55'000 mi and counting. Wild camping most nights and cooking most of my own meals, I keep the costs low and the landscape changing.
