I ate juevos rancheros at a restaurant and then found my way into tree line behind a gas station. It was hot early. I was tired. I set up my hammock and laid down for rest.
Time passed. I slept most of the day.
My GPS had told me the frontage road ended a few miles after the rest stop. I did not want to travel on the interstate at night. I was a little disappointed, I spent most of the day resting and missed out on some good miles.
I settled. I found a great bridge with culverts beneath. It was along an empty river bed. I had to off road the jeep to get down there. I was nervous that thorns from the desert brush would puncture a tire or two. It was risky, but I made it down there. I hung my hammock and watched the moon and stars. I slept great!
