Sunrise Over Cattle Chutes

This morning I had my earliest start yet.  I strapped my headlamp onto my bike bag, drank a cup of cold coffee and was riding by 6:00 AM.  As you can see, I watched the sunrise as I pedaled east.

I rode through a 58 mile section where there were no services, so I had to carry extra water and food to keep me going.  It was a very peaceful ride...nice roads...minimal traffic.  It was made even nicer by a crossing tailwind.
