Well I left paradise at the ranch and Johnny and Donna a bit reluctantly because they were so great.
Johnny took me back up the canyon from his ranch to hwy 40. (Note cool belt from clothing business days)
It’s kind of like Highway One in BigSur in that you think there’s nothing on the other side of the road from the ocean but when you go off on one of those roads, there’s all kinds of houses tucked in here and there.
This picture is Johnny dropping me off. He also showed me a great app where I can see what my altitude is.
He hates having his picture taken. As soon as the camera is present he freezes up. In person, this guy is very attractive. For all he’s done, there was nothing pompous about him at all. Both of them had amazing stories and it was a big joy pleasure inspiration and blessing to have met them.
I did about 43 miles yesterday (w a big pass) and am doing a lttle over 50 today with no huge climbs. I’m now in Duchesne (about 26 miles) and am eating breakfast and powering phone. Johnny gave me a banana, an apple and trail mix packages to get me to Duchesne.
I am going to go to the town museum and then take off for Roosevelt UT, 28 relatively easy miles away where I have a hotel reservation.
There was nothing from the ranch to here but beauty and this is LITERALLY a one block town. I love that in this one block, they have a museum!!
Haha a block full of rich culture
