Due to never-ending pandemic, wildfires burning up to the edge of our home, and family obligations back East, 2020 has prevented me from undertaking as many bicycling expeditions as I would in a typical year. I made it to Death Valley in January and Nevada in February, but that’s about it.
Despite those triple constraints, I’ve remained determined to spend a few more days off grid with Ogre before the year passes into history. As often happens, Death Valley seemed to best fit my needs for proximity, weather conditions, biking options, etc. As soon as the first opportunity presented itself this month, I was on the way.
