Sombrerete and beyond…

September 5, 2010

A view of the city of Sombrerete. This was the biggest city we had been in in Mexico thus far. It was very exciting for us and made us even more anxious for Zacatecas...

I love maps. Here is the one we get to look at all day...

For cows...and cyclists?...

...and again. I would say we maneuvered over about 10 of these that day...

Geode love...

Some long days of riding must end with a dinner of cookies and beer...

We happen to pass through the town of Santa Barbara just as their anniversary festivities were at a peak. I got to witness my first rodeo...

...and as grand as it was, I had to look away most of the time. Seriously scared and confused cows are too much for me...

Yvette, a rodeo beauty...

Fans hoping for some action...

Determined to make it to Zacatecas this day, we rose before the sun. Kurt, with an early cup of coffee already in his system, took pleasure in flipping the eggs as high as he could as the dawn broke around us...

One positive thing about finding your camp spot in the darkness is that you get to enjoy a nice surprise of lit scenery in the morning, as we did here with this lake...

Just another perfect dirt road, no big deal...

The seemingly abandoned town of Nueva Australia...

Door jam love just outside of Zacatecas ...
