First 10 km we rode on a street under construction and afterwards we rode for 25 km on hard shoulder of a interstate highway where it was exceptionally allowed. Lunch stop at Sinclair at a town created and named by the respective oil company. After lunch we had a short ride to Rawlins where we waited for the rain to pass. However as we crossed another continental divide (Great Divide Basin of Wyoming)* we were riding into the rain. But again we were lucky as after 6 pm and 25 km away from the next shelter Tom stopped with his Pick-up and horse trailer and rescued our Iron horses from the approaching storm. So it was an easy ride to Muddy Gap for 40 km to the nearest and only campground (without showers). Anyways we were happy to put up our tent before it started to rain.
*The Great Divide Basin is an area of land in Wyoming’s Red Desert (United States) where none of the water falling as rain to the ground drains into any ocean, directly or indirectly.
