Al from Marfa Public Radio joins me for breakfast and picks up the tab. Great conversation about many things and it's just reaffirming that people are good.
Heading towards Pinto Canyon Road..
Eventually pavement ends..
The cactus are blooming..
Sights from the road..
I'm told that if one experiences difficulty along Pinto Canyon Road one only needs call out and someone will be dispatched to assist. Once being "the" route for smuggling, it's widely believed to have microphones and other monitoring devices placed pretty much up the whole length of the road. I don't know if that's true or not, but I wouldn't be surprised.
Pretty soon I'm in Ruidosa and low and behold the road is paved. Figure I'll see how far the pavement goes and I end up riding to Candelaria before turning around..
That fence at the bottom? That's the border. This area is isolated enough and monitored enough that it's not a problem.
This road is either curves or hills, and fun. I only got air twice, I promise.
Off to Presidio for lunch and petrol..
The road to Hell is paved...
