Day 5 – September 12: Diamond to Crane
“Into the Great Wide Open” (40 or 85 miles)
Leaving the ranches of the Diamond Valley, head north and roll through the stark upheaval of the Diamond Craters; this is the main elevation change of the day. Enjoy the simple complexity of the Pete French Round Barn, and then get your Zen on for a peaceful afternoon of open-country riding as you tune in to the sights and sounds of the nature that teems around you. After lunch at a hot springs, opt for the shorter or longer road to Crane.
