Hero's Quest 2008

Phoenix to Panama by Bicycle in Support of Real Life Heroes
By Britney Brimhall and Jonathan Manley
#733 - posted Sunday August 28, 2016 by Neil Gunton

"I remember collecting maps from my National Geographic magazines and storing them away in my own little safe. I'd spend ample amounts of time planning for a bike ride around the world. I ultimately felt I would end up in the wilds of Africa, but my route always began with heading South--it just felt right. It was always the neatest feeling to me, knowing that I could ride just a handful of miles south of my home town, and be in foreign territory and immersed in another culture, where people speak a different language, eat different foods, and have a different way of living entirely..." - read this journal

SAM_1886.JPG This is officially my favorite picture I have taken on the Northern Tier.

If you look closely, you can see Jenny positioned perfectly where the water falls behind the bridge.

You can really get a scope how amazing riding up the road would be.
