Up early again cause it was going to be hot -- and it was. The scenery is pretty much just flat plains with occasional corn fields and some of the biggest cow lots I’ve ever seen. We rode pretty hard, mostly to try and beat the heat. We arrived at camp in Wray, CO about 1:30. Camp is in a city park with nice big shade trees. The showers are about 8 blocks away at the swimming pool and cold water only, but nobody seems to care. The folks in Wray have been very friendly and there is a pool party for us at the pool tonight. I am going to stay in camp and try to turn in early as I didn’t get much sleep last night. Between the train traffic on 2 sides and a helicopter landing at the hospital right next door, a lot of us didn’t get much sleep. Also we want to get out early tomorrow as the high temp is supposed to be 104.
