That’s a long road with nothing!
As soon as we left Longview this morning we entered into ranchlands – and they never ended. The trees have been cleared away and the whole area is nothing more than huge grassy fields with cows and horses.
But talk about hill! Huge gradual climb after huge gradual climb with barely a down in between. After 68 km, we finally reached the top and started our descent – WHEEE!
We’re now paralleling the Rockies and had fabulous views of the mountains most of the day – until it clouded over and started to rain.
Fortunately, the rain was short-lived, but for a while there we feared we were in for a cold, wet afternoon.
