It was about 40 degrees when we crossed the border into Mexico on Dec 26th and clouds covered the sky. There wasn’t any rain in the forecast but there wasn’t any sun or warm weather in the forecast either. Oh well – we were on a mission and weren’t deterred by the conditions.
We topped our tanks at the last Pemex in Acuna before riding west into the desert. It’s 40 kilometers of pavement to the village of Santa Eulalia where we stopped at a small convenience store to adjust our luggage and stretch our legs. The dirt section of the day’s ride was just about to start.
