Southwestern Desert & Plains


We have been biking now through some of the most arid and tumultuous landscapes in the country. We have seen lava fields and strange volcanic formations that tower over plains of cacti and agave. Our only regret is that our days are spent making it to the next town. Which often holds our direct attention because of potable water sources. Therefore we haven’t been able to write quite as much of our travels due to internet locations. We will have much to say in the near future as we travel across these ranges laced with deserts. Our current way-point goal is Phoenix, AZ (our current midpoint to San Diego).
