Rest day! My warmshowers host Ron is the Director of the Visitor’s Center at Coronado National Forest, the Bryce Canyon of Arizona. He took me on a personal tour of the public areas, which were near empty in January but so beautiful on a perfect clear day.
About five I pedaled the short distance between the dirt road to Ron’s house and the dirt road to ET’s house for an evening with my second Portal, AZ host. ET may be the most literate and well-informed cowboy on earth. Forty years of punching cattle, fighting wildfires and being a medic in a region with a lot of undocumented immigrant emergencies made for a thought-provoking evening of great stories.
