Desert Beauty

Eleven glorious hours in the saddle today. It was an EPIC day and I loved EVERY minute.

4:55 AM…eyes WIDE open.

Quick shower, some Orange #zipfizz blended with the PERFECTED combination of ice, water, and organic coconut water. Yummy. What more could a guy want for breakfast?

Today’s Bible devotional was from John 3. Recently, like this AM, I will use the #YouVersion Bible App and have the Scriptures read to me. My translation of choice, as of late, is The Message by Eugene Peterson. I have Beto Gudino to hold accountable for that. Thanks Beto!

This is the verse that captured my imagination: Jesus said, “You’re not listening. Let me say it again. Unless a person submits to this original creation—the ‘wind hovering over the water’ creation, the invisible moving the visible, a baptism into a new life—it’s not possible to enter God’s kingdom.” John 3:5 (MSG)

Bike loaded and my room key turned in . . . I began the morning with a quick trip up into the Eastern Sierra Mountain foothills to catch the sunrise . . . which I posted on my Facebook page earlier today.

Note: Throughout the day, I post a lot on Instagram. Be sure to check it out.

From there, I ascended East, over the California White Mountains on Hwy 168 and Hwy 266. I will DEFINITELY be returning.

For all you motorcycle enthusiasts, if you’ve not done this stretch of payment, I strongly encourage you too. It features single lane pavement on multiple occasions.

While peaking the Westgard Pass, I stopped to shoot this short video. It’s a little SHOUT OUT to my Bible study boys on Monday night and Wednesday morning.

Shortly thereafter, I was greeted with THIS . . .

Highway 168

I’ll close by sharing a few of the sites that greeted me along the way:

I’ll see you tomorrow. I’ve got my sights on Idaho.
