McDonald Observatory, TX to Marathon, TX (75 miles)

Today was a great day of riding. After leaving the observatory we had one of the best descents of our trip so far - fast and twisty with rolling hills on one side and beautiful mountains on the other. Lindsey's bike computer read a max speed of 41.3 mph (66 km per hour).

We stopped for lunch in Alpine, where we had a huge feed of very tasty mexican food. Then with fully bellies we rode the last 30 miles into Marathon - with several huge freight trains flying past us along the way (we tried to race them but the trains won).

We're staying at an artists commune tonight ( and plan on taking a rest day here tomorrow too.
