Day 52, 6/29/10 - Culbertson, MT to Williston, ND!

Just the Basics: H4: Horrible Heat, Headwinds and Hills! 44 miles; we're both sunburned despite assiduous application of sunscreen - it was still 91 degrees at 6:45 p.m. in Williston. We agree that the best part of the day is having endured it!

We made another milestone today - we passed mile 1500 and are now at mile 1533! We're in a new state (ND), and a new time zone - we heard from a fellow biker today that ND is actually NOT in the Central Time Zone - it's just that they don't observe Daylight Savings Time, so during that period they are, de facto, on Central time. Whatever!

We had a really good dinner at Don Pedro' s Mexican restaurant near our motel in Williston, including 1 1/2 Cadillac margaritas each.

Today's Photos (posted 6/30/10): (1) Speaks for itself; and (2) Showy Milkweed - a flower we've been puzzling over and finally ID'd = ) = )

Everything Else: Tomorrow; after 7 straight days of riding for a total of 319 miles, we're taking a layover day tomorrow.

Goodnight - we're beat!
