So many are having the heat wave in the central part of the country, so I would ride in the heat in many places. The wind continues to help push me along. I sure appreciate that. Going short mileage days did not seem like I would not make much progress. I am surprised how far I have gone in 53 days by covering over 1100 miles. I have had time in the day to explore the areas that I have traveled through. I got another post card today.

This is the Cadillac Ranch outside Amarillo. It was created in 1974 by Chip Lord, Hudson Marquez, and Doug Michels. The are part of an avant-gard art design group called the Ant Farm. They planted nose first.
