Palo Dura Canyon 6-26-11
Oh my, 6 am comes way to early. With the 3am wake up (fire) alarm, and then we are packed and ready to head out at 6am....where is the sleep? We are all here and accounted for except the Alvey's. I call, and Jennifer sounds like she is still asleep. Could it be. I guess she set her phone for one more 5 minutes, and it didn't go off. LOL She said, you have never seen someone get around so quickly. We pull out to some beautiful cool air, and ride for awhile before the sun peaks out. The wind is starting to blow, and by the time we cross over the Oklahoma border, it is really howling. Reminds me of the ride back from Santa Fe a few weeks ago. We stop in Sayre and gas up and eat some breakfast. Not really sure what is going on with that Denny's, but a truck driver was complaining as we stood there to be seated. The food came out pretty quick, and it was good, so I guess we got lucky this time. On the bike again, and yes the wind is getting worse. We make another stop in Weatherford, so we can all rest and get out of the wind for a little while. We get home before noon. So glad we had such a great weekend with our great friends. I think everyone was glad to be home and out of the wind machine that we had to deal with today. Time to get all the laundry ready as we are leaving on Thursday for our 10 day trip to Niagara Falls.
