Day 16, Post 15: Hi, all - a day when writing isn't so easy. This will be short. I'm sitting in a tent right now, out of a mild dust storm after an evening of near perfect weather. Im in Fort Baker, near the Rio Grande, about 60 miles SE of El Paso. Open, dry, hot country. Reminds me of Paris, TX, the movie.
Check out my road cycling activity on Garmin Connect.
Pic 1, A piñon nut vender. Did you know that most of our piñon nuts come from China and some people are allergic to them? I didn't. The North American variety has to be cultivated by hand since they only grow wild. We were able to buy some. Yum! More protein than red meat and loaded with vitamins and minerals.
