Man alive! The temperature plummeted fast! I mean fast!
We made the best time we’ve made for ages – whipped out fifty miles in record time. So when we saw a road heading back toward the towering sandstone cliffs we’ve been following all day, we turned in.
It was great to hang out in the desert for a while after our ride. The kids had a blast climbing hills and exploring the area while John and I relaxed in the warm sunshine.
But when the sun began to set – oh my! Within a matter of minutes we hastily pulled hats and gloves and jackets off the bikes and bundled up. Fortunately, we have warm sleeping bags to retreat to.
It appears as though we’ve lost Daryl – for a while anyway. Yesterday I bought “Brisinger” – the third book of the Eragon trilogy. Daryl immediately dove in and disappeared. We’ll see his face again once he finishes the book. I suppose there are worse things that could happen – but I’ll miss his smiling face.
