Today's 69 miles of rolling hills turned into 76 miles of rolling hills.  We started out on a nasty road which was exacerbated by lots of traffic due to an annual Antique Fair (acres of tents).

After 15 miles on this awful road with an awful shoulder, Dennis rerouted us .  We took a detour that added about 4 miles, but was quiet and pastoral.

Very few cars meant a peaceful ride

We were a little surprised to see an active oil well.

We took one more detour because of a dirt road which added a couple miles.  No complaints really, less traffic and paved roads were our choices!

Margery GassWhat beautiful trees. They remind me a little of the live oaks we saw in the South.

We are moving away from dry dry Texas to a more humid Texas.  Nice for the skin, not so nice for drying our laundry.  It is fun to be so intimate with our natural surroundings. 

Today's ride: 76 miles (122 km)
Total: 1,201 miles (1,933 km)
