Thank you for your words of encouragement, prayers, and financial support. Your donations and the sponsorship of Green Miles, go a long way to offset expenses. Through your generosity, I am able to share the story with all the viewers of Tour of Discovery.
As most of you know, I am presently in Cedar City, Utah and now riding through my third state. California and Nevada had their own set of difficulties and rewards. The mountain climbs and weather extremes were tough to deal with. The panoramas were worth the sacrifice. The challenges are far from over and hopefully so are the blessings. Utah is full of summits, extremely hot, windy, and terribly dry. On the leg from Baker to Milford, I experienced three sandstorms, one rainstorm, and an electrical storm when camping on Wah Wah Mountain. This has been the greatest test, so far. Many more are sure to follow. Tomorrow, I have a big challenge. A 10,000-ft climb patiently waits for me. With renewed energies I looking forward to face the mountain and reach the summit.
At the end of the 22nd day, Mr. Giraldo arrives in Cedar City, Utah. The map above shows the ground he has covered since beginning his epic journey June 6, 2009. He has brought us through many scenic locations, accompanied by splendid pictures and videos. I’m expecting today to be a rest day, we’ll wait for a message for Mr. G’s next move or just watch to see where SPOT [Password=”Student”] takes us next. Stay tuned…
Don’t forget the RAAM Race Leaderboard.
