Day 68 – Lordsburg, NM to Duncan, AZ

In Arizona!!! Only two more states to GO. New Mexico went by quickly and only had one tough day. Today the first 27 miles were mostly flat and the last 9 1/2 miles were mostly a gentle downhill. Only took 2 1/2 hours and arrived at the Ol Jo’s Cafe around 9:30 am where the waitress “D” helped me find a place to stay. She made a few phone calls and ended up recommending a Bed & Breakfast called the Simpson Hotel. She said the owner had hosted other people making trips for worthy causes.

When I asked the owner, Deborah Mendelsohn, if she would host me she only had to think about it for about 5 seconds before saying yes. She is in the process of making improvements and renovations to the B & B. It is a very charming place. Can’t include photos today, my phone doesn’t get good service in the room so can’t email them to myself.

Tomorrow on to Safford, AZ, about 41 miles away.
