It is frankly amazing how much empty country there is in the Western United: miles and hundreds of miles of desolate terrain. While I know this intellectually, riding virtually on a bike for days and days through empty country reenforces the point.
On day 28, I traveled 28 miles across central Utah. Starting from the Pony Express Faust’s Station [N40 10 27.0 W112 25 38.8], I rode along the Pony Express Trail Road. Connecting with Highway 73, I turned on to Lehi-Fairfield Road just past Camp Floyd State Park. I finished the ride at the Pony Express Joe’s Dugout Station [N40 21 19.0 W111 59 34.0] in Eagle Mountain. Along the way, I passed the sites of the East Rush Valley Station [N40 12 23.1 W112 17 35.6] and Camp Floyd [N40 15 37.9 W112 05 34.4] Pony Express Stations.
