I left Pete at 2pm in Hanksville with 2 gallons of water and food for 2 days. Headwinds blew the rest of the day. Dinner at Hog springs was sardines, yogurt, and an orange. I rode another 20 miles before camping at slick rock 5 miles east of the Colorado river.
Headwinds in White canyon and all the way to Blanding. Ate dinner in Blanding then camped at Devils canyon campground 8 miles down the road.
Rode 96 miles to campsite along Delores river.
Up the Delores river to Rico where the coffee shop served up a great breakfast burrito. A quick climb over Lizard head pass and I arrived at Telluride around 1pm.
Rest day in Telluride. Repaired bike rack, napped, and hiked on Clay way with Kathy, Amy, and Ron.
Rode over Dallas divide to Montrose then over Cerro summit. Decided that I could make it to Gunnison before dark. Arrived at Mark and Cora's just in time for dinner.
