Is this the trail-end of Hermosa Creek (and subsequent TH for Jones Creek)?


No, though I’ve ridden both of those trails on previous trips.  The picture is from a campsite in the Turkey Springs trail system near Pagosa Springs.

We reluctantly started home yesterday leaving the mountains of New Mexico for that long trek across west Texas.  But we opted to break it up by lounging around camp all morning, going for a final ride and then driving just five hours.   We drove with our back to the setting sun and arrived at Comanche Trail Park in Big  Spring an hour and a half after sunset, where we camped for the night.  We are now five hours from home…

Great trip, Ronnie! Props to Sharell for not killing you in your sleep...yet!

Updates are great - keep em coming!

I’m a light sleeper.  Sharell and I met on a mountain bike ride 31 years ago. (It was February, cold, spitting rain, and she was glad to be there.  I knew she was game.)   We have ridden together in nine states through the years, raised two kids who love cycling, and we still enjoy playing together.  How much we want to ride, or how hard, or how often doesn’t always line up but we are still out there!

We have been home for two weeks now.  Our yard is a jungle, our rainwater tanks are full, and our dog, Zeus, remembers who we are.  All is well!

Trip numbers include:  

49 days gone (seven weeks)

28 different campsites

23 bike rides

2500 miles driven (rough estimate)

0 number of times we said “I wish we had stayed home.”
