Day Fifteen | March 14, 2021
Van Horn, TX to Fort Davis, TX
We are all tired. This is our eighth day in a row of cycling, and we woke up to a temperature of 34 degrees and winds at 12 mph (wind chill 21 degrees!) We bundled up!
The pass through these low grassy mountains was really lovely and not too steep. We didn’t take pictures because we still had two layers of gloves on and didn’t want to stop.
Reached the top (5,945 ft elevation- started the day at 4,000 ft.) and then had 16 miles of downhill with the wind at our back! Coasted at 30+ mph. So deserved it. 🙂
Fort Davis is at 5,000 ft. elevation. The town is cute (will have pictures tomorrow). Our Hotel Limpia is lovely.
Tomorrow is a rest day. Aaaahhhh.
