Day 3: Kitt Peak, AZ to San Diego, CA
Distance: 722 km
Duration: approximately 10 hours
There really isn’t much to say about this ride; it was really just a ‘get there’ kinda day. The amazing thing was that it was a relatively easy drive. I was running on 3 hours sleep (after being at the telescope for 12 hours) yet I still made it home ahead of schedule. Since that was the case, I went straight to the ocean.
In California and Arizona there is far too many landmarks to see, too many amazing roads to ride, too much unseen scenery, and far too many mountains to climb with just 3 days to do it.
The one thing I learned on this trip: I have to go back.
