Today John and I cycled over Hoosier Pass (elevation 11,539 feet), the highest point along the TransAmerican Bicycle Trail. We ended our day in Frisco, Colorado, where we left our bicycles and bags in a friends’ condo (thanks Jeff and April) and rented a car to drive to the ALA Annual Conference in New Orleans. These magic metal boxes with air-conditioning and music! Currently we are traveling southeast at 74 mph! Amazing.
In New Orleans we will be refueling with beignets, café au lait, poboys, seafood, bread pudding, croissants, baguettes… New Orleans is a great city for food and we are hungry. We’ll be returning to our bikes in Frisco early next week and continuing with the second half of our cross-country adventure, seeing the western states and more libraries.
