Very welcome cool morning weather in Riverside, CA, sent the tour group heading east for two climbs early in the day. For the first time ever CrossRoads riders were escorted through the Morongo Band is Mission Indians Reservation just outside Palm Springs. Not only was this opportunity very appreciated, the riders took a quick break and enjoyed the beautiful landscaping outside the Reservation gate. Green grass, roses, and a fountain with blue sky and snow capped mountains. What could be better before the dry rock and sandy landscape later in the day!
Downtown Palm Springs was a perfect lunch stop before heading for the hotel in Indio. A good dinner and a restful night of sleep before tomorrow’s 97 mile ride through the desert to Blythe, and the last night in CA.
