Slow start. I left Salome at about 8 am, after saying goodbye to Kat, Patti, and Theodore.
Almost 1000 feet of climbing today, but it didn’t even feel like an incline, as the elevation gain was over 50 miles, and there was a bit of a tailwind at times. Not as strong a wind as yesterday.
Stopped in Aguila to look at a flea market (see previous post).
I got into Wickenburg before 2 pm. The first place I stopped was Goodwill. Their Goodwill store is probably the biggest I’ve ever seen. A T-shirt from Hope, Arizona spoke to me, since it was the only store that was open on my ride the day before. $2.99, but Tuesday was senior day, so I got 25% off.
I checked into the Best Western. It was a step up from what I would usually choose. $81, but that included a full breakfast.
For dinner, I just had a salad bar and root beer float down the block. Then I crossed the street to the theater in town, which was only showing one movie. It had been quite a while since I had seen a theater that was not a multi-plex. Guardians of the Galaxy 2 was playing. $8, and I just walked in for the 7 pm showing. No lines.
