99 miles to El Morro
On Wednesday, May 9th, we woke early from our roadside camp just about 10 miles south of St. Johns, AZ. It was a chilly morning to be riding and the landscape was stark. We rode non-stop into downtown St. Johns looking for whatever it had to offer. The entire downtown was either vacant, for sale or completely deserted. The heart of the town seemed to be a pair of gas/convenience stores directly across the street from one another.Odd, this town isn't even a hundred years old and it looks like it just barely hanging on for its life.
