There was always a second dream tied to the first of biking across America: writing a book. Click the front cover of Under a Triumphant Sky to obtain a copy of my memoir. In it you'll enjoy all of my stories in detail.

Motel 6 in Phoenix, AZ
I really liked the woman who worked behind the counter at the Motel 6. We had a nice discussion about my bike trip and stolen bike. She also gave me a map of Phoenix which proved to be quite helpful. :)

Organ Pipe Cactus
In the afternoon, I paid a visit to the Desert Botanic Garden. The organ pipe cactus is one of my favorites. I look too happy in this picture, don't I? :p
