Tour Divide Day 13.

215km. Atlantic City to Rawlins.
Total time: 11.5 hours, including <30 mins stopped.

In anticipation of the big ride, I waited for the town restaurant to open for breakfast and loaded up on french toast and probably the best bacon that I've ever eaten.

It was a grand leap across the great divide basin. Total desolation. No services. No water. I saw just 3 cars in the first 10 hours of the day.

I think that I crossed the half way point today!

The most exciting thing that I saw were small groups of antelope. Actually, it was rather exciting. They are cool animals. I like their big bug eyes and graceful running style.

This was the first day that I've been able to ride the full day with only my jersey on. It was nice to wake up and go and not be cold.

No picture today. Not much to say. Probably a good sign. But I'm tired now. Looks like another big day tomorrow. And another after that.

that's a huge day... that big basin is "boring" in some ways but beautiful in its simplicity.

Antelope are cool creatures indeed. Alert, sensitive, they seem to float along their way. Up close one sees their heart in their eyes. Imagine what they would tell us if they could write!

Yea, people always say that to me too. "I love your big bug eyes and graceful running style."
