Camp wood, TX to Ingram, TX (89 miles)

Today's ride was fantastic - definitely
one of the best yet! We're finally out of the desert, and are well and truly into Texas hill country.

We had quite a few climbs in the first half of the day, the biggest was about 1200 feet. We were riding through wooded countryside and saw lots of deers, sheep, goats and a few dead armadillos.

Moe met us for lunch and had prepared a spread of awesome guacamole and pasta salad for us to dive into. It was a huge treat seeing we've mostly been having peanut butter and jelly sandwiches for lunch.

In the afternoon we rode alongside the Guadalupe River, and passed many really ritzy houses. It was beautiful riding; the trees met over the middle of the road, the river flowed by next to us and Moe even saw a few horses swimming in it.

We're now two days of riding out from Austin; which we're all really excited to reach. Still chasing the best BBQ in Texas, but think we can find it in Austin.
