Do the Chickens Have Large Talons?

Sharing some of the artwork on the International Hostel of Santa Fe Pension, where I stayed last night. The art feels very “Napoleon Dynamite” – like the eagle’s talons are aiming for a liger. “Do the chickens have large talons?” –Napoleon Dynamite (see photo below)

Just beat the storms (photo above). Lots of lightning and thunder on the horizon. The winds picked up and skies grew dark about 7 miles outside of Santa Fe. I stopped at a gas station and asked a lady if the storms generally moved north.

“I’m not sure, but throw your bike in my car and I’ll take you the rest of the way.”

That is how I met Jenny, a speech therapist who got me safely into town.

I had a solid 58 miles in on the day with plenty of long hills and just a smidge too much heat.

I believe the elevation is also hindering my Supergirl powers.

I started Thursday at 4:30 a.m. just to beat the heat and it took me until 5 p.m. to get to my destination.

Stay tuned for a photo gallery of yesterday’s sights!
