As ever in the desert fighter jets scream overhead. The sun, I watched rise and paint the surrounding mountains various colours. I can hear birds all around. The greater valley is called Earthquake Valley with the Pinyon Mountains to the north and Granite Mountain behind me to the south. In a few miles I reach Scissors Crossing, then it’s a gradual climb through the Cigarette Hills to the bottom of Banner Grade. I’ve been told the Grade has more bends in an 8 mile stretch of highway in all of North America, but I don’t believe that. The same person told me all the women in Boston were ugly.

This is an excerpt from Anza-Borrego Desert - Part 81 of the journal of my cycle across America, posted on IrishKC.
