Day 3 – Live Oak Springs, CA to Calexico, CA – 62.89 Miles – Elevation +1,158 / -4,583 ft.
Started the day with another flat tire. Two flats in three days is not a good sign. So I had to bite the bullet and change out my rear tire and tube. The day was a new experience for me in temperature extremes. It was about 39 degrees when I crawled out of my tent but quickly climbed into the 90s as we rode along the US border fence. We had a nice 6 percent downhill coast into the desert.
The first picture today is of the US Border Fence.
While there doesn’t seem like there is much life in the desert, when you look closely the desert is the home to some critters.
Total flat tires = 2
