Day 12: Buckhorn

A pretty tough day on the bike. Ran out of energy on the big climb of the day. So stuffed my face with pretzels and coke cola. Shortly thereafter the sugar and salt worked its magic and I was almost back to full strength for the 26 mile run into Buckhorn.

Forgot to mention that at 8.13 am the temperature was 19°c and it just got hotter and windier as the day progressed.

New Mexico

Passed into New Mexico (The Land of Enchantment). The landscape on entering the state is absolutely spectacular, in particular the colours of the grassland in the foreground with the mountainous backdrop.
