We woke up early after our warmest night in 4 days and it was a toasty 32 degrees. By the time we got packed up and on the road at 7:00, it was 34 degrees and we sniffled our way through the first few hours of the ride. But nothing could get us down--we were going to arrive in El Pasito!

After the rough day getting into Columbus, this ride was a breeze. There was a light headwind, but not bad and we just cruised. We rested at 10 miles and again at 25, and we had a brunchish meal of bologna sandwiches at 11:00am/40 miles and we even took a little nap on the BP side road! We woke up refreshed and excited to continue. It didn't take long and we could see the Franklin Mountains that are in El Paso. We pushed on excitedly and only got more excited as they grew bigger.
