Sometimes I'm pedalling lazily, or just letting the bike coast slowly on its own, so I can focus on the views of the distant hills around me. I don't want the trip to end too soon!

In the haze ahead stand the Granite Mountains and the Coyote Springs area where I spent two nights last week.

The tip of the Kelso Dunes is poking into the right side of this photo.
