3 Months Later…

So 3 months after our trip, I finally got around to posting the higher-res pictures and collecting some from Dad and Jason.  It’s kind of a random selection:

This is one of me showing the full touring setup on the bike. This is in the Cimarron National Grassland, in the southwest corner of Kansas.
