Today was lots of fun. I got to play on some twisties without all my luggage, which was refreshing. Huge thanks to normalcyispasse and tleex for taking me out canyon carving. We went east out of Mesa to Tortilla Flat. I'm kicking myself for not having my helmet cam out there but we got some stills (don't forget to send/post those normalcyispasse!) Plus we stopped for ice cream and I got prickly pear, which was delicious. My bike overheated when we were almost home but I think that was more due to trying to keep up with Brandon's R1 in 100 degrees than any issues with my bike. It was fine on the road to Tucson, though the sun had set by then. It was kind of scary heading towards a lightning storm but it didn't start raining until I got off the freeway and was almost to my cousin's house.

The heat hasn't really bothered me too much. I'm staying hydrated and my mesh gear has good ventilation, so as long as I'm moving, I'm good (and I miss lane splitting). And even though it was relatively cool for Phoenix at 100, I think that should be the hottest bit of this trip, so the hard part's over. Nevada might get close though.

I'd forgotten how pretty the clouds can be out here! I love seeing a sky full of puffy clouds, plus the sunset was breathtaking tonight.

Tomorrow: Socorro!
