April 8 prompt:  Pedaling West - Del Rio to Pasadena - Sharon Hawley's cross country bike ride To complete her second cross country bike ride, the Southern route, member Sharon Hawley, leaves Del Rio, TX, today for Pasadena, CA - tires to the road.  The first leg of this tour started in Florida in February 2013 and ended in Del Rio on April 4, 2013.  She left Pasadena by train for Del Rio on April 4, 2014, one year for the day she ended leg 1. At the time of this writing it is about 4:30 in Texas so she should be well past Langtry. maybe as far as Alpine or Marfa. (At the moment, with help of good map, I am guessing.) Let's wish Sharon the best of luck on her journey, adding to the 20,000 miles she has traveled.  What are your great Adventures?  Where have you traveled in unusual ways?  How?  (Mine was Alaska in an RV.) Where would you like to go?  How will your tanka help you guide Sharon down the road?  Thanks, Sharon, for letting us travel with you. (You may read all about her biking adventures in her blog:  Pedaling West II - http://sharonbybicycle.blogspot.com/2013_02_01_archive.html  There are lots of pictures and information about the exotic places she as been such as Antarctica, Pakistan, Fiji and Oregon.

Westward Ho !
the call of the wild lures me
bicycle for one
dream of brave early travelers 
stars their only guide

4/8 Sharon’s ride Langtry
.
a dusty town
the largest of western legends
dying along the river
the nightingale no longer sings
time for a trek over dusty plains
