And for a time I thought it looked exactly like a piece of Wyoming that I rode across two years ago in the Big Ride on our way to Newcastle. Rangeland with mountains in the distance. There was a mountain to the southeast that could have been a stand-in for the Devils Tower.

Had to stop outside Cuba for road construction where we got flagged through a newly tarred section of road. Fresh tar on the bike and my legs and socks. Then Cuba appeared and I went to the Cuban Place, and had a nice grilled ham and cheese and the usual gallon of iced tea and a chocolate shake. I got there before they closed at 3, so maybe 10 1/2 hours for 120 miles.
El Bruno's was recommended, and I got their steak and enchiladas. Was delicious and I couldn't eat it all and took the leftovers back to the hotel for the next day's ride to Abiquiu. It would be a hard ride of nearly 80 miles across the Santa Fe National Forest.
