3-18-15 Safford, AZ to Lordsburg, NM 78 miles

It was a long day today, but we did have a break from the head winds - in fact, we even had a mild tail wind from the West!  We had rain for 30 miles and it was getting colder with the climb of the Southern Rockies.  Scenery turned from fields of cotton plants to rocks and hills.  Shoulders were not as friendly but the last 20 miles into Lordsburg were smooth.  With a tail wind Peggy and I sailed in at 22 mph!

Tomorrow we ride 47 miles into Silver City, NM, and it promises to be another challenging day.  We do, however, get a rest day which will be appreciated!
