Nr.77 USA – The American West is simply sensational

No.66 – Mexico – Taking on Baja Divide

No.52 – USA – Biking in the California desert

What a spectacular experience !   The sky was breathtaking! There was thunder and lightning and the world appeared to be coming to an end. In the desert it was like a match going on between the forces of the elements and I was smack-dab in the...
