Day 12: A River Runs Through It

Don & Penny* at the table next to us in Boogies restaurant told us about their ride across America 12 years ago from California to Florida. He put in 90 mile days and she SAGged (support and gear) for him. We tell people we are from Santa Barbara but when they hear Stephen’s British accent they are skeptical.

We resupplied before heading down the road. We stopped for refreshments at Rachel’s (same name as our daughter) in South Fork where the two forks of the Rio Grande meet.

Park Creek campground was our stop for the night. Duane & Dixie are the friendly hosts here. They said this is the best campsite for river access. We have to agree. We enjoyed lounging in the hammocks and rinsing off in the chilly river before cooking our dinner.
