Abrupt ending, but a wise ending.
As we left Brazos cliff area in Northern New Mexico, westarted descending quite a bit and in a few days we were in some very ariddesert which provided a lot of heat. 90and 100 degree weather consumed the day and our energy but it was alright, itjust made the miles slower but made for some amazing photos and scenery. Soon though even that dissipated and we werein pretty simple landscapes, and it was hard to stay amped. I guess it happened like that too, just aquick decision, in our minds it was over, we had done way beyond what we thoughwas possible by bike with climbing gear, and it was just a choice fromfeelings. So we quickly changeddirection to Albuquerque where we would end.
Like people say on long distance trails, hike your hike, so that'swhat we did, we biked in the way that made us feel fulfilled and accomplished,I wouldn't change our course of events through this trip in any way. I feel proud of what we accomplished.
