July 12th, 2012: Remnants of the Oregon Trail. The last 2 days of cycling have been exciting. Yesterday between Lamont and Rawlins, there was a terrible stretch of road with a horrible shoulder and 75 mph trucks. Even Skip thought it was scary. Then we had a big climb over the Continental Divide but the winds were with us and we flew up the hill at 15 mph with only sporadic pedaling. Today we had 13 miles on the freeway which believe it or not was relaxing after yesterday due to the wide shoulder!
