Leaving Miles City, MT; headed for: Bismark, CO. 9:30 am/75° and 91° before noon. First marker I saw for the day: “Bad Route Road,” wondering if that is a bad omen.
Praying for cooler temperatures today. Strong winds buffet our bike and trailer. Steve needs to maintain his focus to keep our bike on the road. Frontal and cross winds very stiff! Dusty, dusty, dusty everywhere!
We walked around our motel to see what we could see and stretch our legs. Grasshoppers ruled the dry, brown vegetation. They were everywhere! Green spots only showed up where sprinkler water touched. Otherwise, no water=dead and brown. Even while zooming down the freeway, one landed on my knee on the motorcycle until I swished him away.
