When our crew was accounted for and ready, we rolled back out to Makoshika and explored the park a little more thoroughly.
You'll all be proud to know that I, Sara Schripsema, stood next to a Loaf n' Jug, chugging a Muscle Milk and chowing down on frosted animal cookies. I know. Disgusting. But, 30 miles later, rolling into Wibaux, I felt great!
Ah, Wibaux (pronounced Wee-bo). This is where I left Jamie, Jeremy, Zandy, and Casey to head south. We stopped at a gas station, where an awesome dude bought us snacks, and then said our goodbyes with sorrow and anticipation for meeting back up again in Michigan. Jamie and Jeremy have been such great brother/sister figures to me, and I have thoroughly enjoyed traveling with them, (and all the antics that ensue when we get tired:))... See you soon, guys!
It was one of the most beautiful rides of the trip thus far. Some challenging hills, rolling farmland, awesome rock formations... And I had a bright sunny tailwind to boot.
I got to Baker with daylight to spare, and am now in my tent in the city park getting sleepy. Goodnight!
