Maybe let it simmer a little?
I've started culling the photos already, and I've begun writing up some thoughts.

Thought #1: I hate Oklahoma. Flat roads, constant wind, nothing to see.

Thought #2: Avoid Oklahoma.

I did have an excellent trip. I saw nearly everything I wanted to see, with a couple of minor exceptions. I didn't really ever feel rushed, either, for packing 4,000 miles of riding and 10 national parks/monuments into 11 days. I think right now I'm too focused on the little disappointments of the trip, rather than focusing on the fact that I really did have a fun, relaxing, safe bike trip.
