So last year I cycled this same route in 3 hours and 3 minutes, this time round it took 4 hours and 35 minutes, which just goes to show how difficult I'm finding it.
I keep saying to myself that it is character building, but I'm not convinced that it is!
Staying at the same campsite as last year. It is costing me $18 for the night. Fortunately this time I've a tree to camp underneath, but the ground is still stoney. Yet, at least the showers etc are spotlessly clean, which is a marked change from those at Palo Verde!
Here is a photo of the campsite, with my tent to the left under the shade of the tree.
Had Pizza for dinner at Silly Al's, and very good it was too, and there is plenty left for breakfast!
