Wide Open Spaces In The Desert Southwest



(ridden April 5, 2011, written May 24)

Friends Diane and Allen Moore gave us two great restaurant recommendations to break up today’s 460 mile ride.  Just in time to thaw out from near freezing morning temps, Larry and I stopped for breakfast at Reb’s Cafe in Benson AZ.  This was a true rebel hang out.  I think we were the only tourists in the place. Our friends from Europe were shocked to hear that patrons carried hand guns on their belts regularly.

Three hundred miles later, as we neared Parker, we enjoyed lunch at the Kofa Cafe.  We added push pins to the large wall map marking our home location.  They have had visitors from all 50 states and, I’m sure, many countries.

We could see the road for miles.  Our only  stops were to photograph the small, white flowered, Joshua Trees, namesakes of the nearby National Park.
