The White Sands National Monument was stunning to see glistening in the distance as I came down from the mountains into Alamagordo, NM.
After a rest day, I’ll be making the 67 mile journey through the White Sands missile range. A commonly traveled road goes through there with regular traffic and they stop cars for an hour or so now and then when they are firing missiles.
There’s one mountain range to cross at the end of that day.
I’m told there are not any water stops the last 40 miles or so of that 67 mile ride so I will be carrying lots of water and will be topping off those bottles at the last water stop before the big “no water” portion. #COASTtoCOASTbicycleride
