Day 7: Gila Bend to Casa Grande, Arizona – 78 miles

A nice roll out on a beautiful road in the Sonoran Desert.


There was a head wind most of the way. Overcast skies helped the heat of the day. The first part of the day was rolling and beautiful. Sag stop 1 was at a school in the middle of nowhere.


The road got busier going into Maricopa, Arizona. We headed down toward Stanfield. The cattle feeding pools and the vast agriculture seemed to leave a different type of feeling.


It seemed as if the grandness of this part of the desert was tortured. Lunch at the Stanfield ranch market. It was great.


81 miles to the barn. Motel 6 did not have our reservations right. We are adapting. 402 miles with 5 extra in 7 days.

  1. Thank you, Tres! These posts are as close to the experience that I will ever get. I can only imagine how my own muscles would be Howlin like Wolf, but what sweet sweet pain!
