Short in miles but long on climbing, 12 mile and 6 mile climbs, 6% grade … beautiful green mountains, warm day but cool night coming up.

So much green after a month in Tucson. So green it hurts my eyes.

Start of 12 mile climb to Alpine.

My home for the next 6 weeks.

Mah-Tay-Ah Campground
First time I’ve stayed on an Indian Reservation

Trying a new sleep aid. Eventually just went back to gatorade bottle.

Crew Bubba, at this point I can’t remember names but all will be friends soon.

Harry does first of the nightly readings from the Book of Bubba.

Gathering for ride to dinner at Casino.

Bus to Casino. That’s RO in yellow cap, RO will become a life long friend on this ride and the other half of RoRo.
