July 5 Post
I traveled about 130.2 miles today.
Transcribed from notebook, July 5: 115 miles from devils tower to Ekalaka. Got food (cliff bars and granola bars) at gas station in Alzada and filled up all for liters of water. Ate all food and drank all water by the time I reached Ekalaka. Medium headwind all day, also some decent hills. Very draining (not to mention dry). Good road for riding. Nice scenery, very little traffic. Saw many sweet and antelope running and jumping fences. Hit the road around 5:30 am, reached Ekalaka by 3 pm, so made very good time. Resupplied with bars, bagels, PB at local grocery and got early dinner at wagon wheel cafe. Burger, fries, big bowl of salad for $7. Full after eating, won't last (never does). Planning to camp at state up road about ten miles, called medicine rock. Biked through Custer national forest today. Scenic, if a little steep. Used library commuter until 6. Biked to medicine rock a little over ten miles. Good to shorten distance for tomorrow. Camped up on ridge. Deer walked by about fifteen yards away - very cool. Second dinner of pb on bagels and bars. Not great, but it's food. Feeling kind of sad today, not sure why, since there were many good things today. Likely just tired, this was a long day. Possible stress from phone situation, seems like stress is usually the cause of this kind of stuff, that and water. Sleep, water, food. Those are probably my the favorite things right now. A favourable wind is a close fourth. Beautiful sunset, a soft glow against hazy clouds. Watched from some sandstone formations.
