The continental divide sign yesterday, was a bit of a bad omen. Gone are the days of butt kicking hill climbs to amazing vistas. Today's ride was felt like breaking up with a high school sweetheart. The mountains are now melting into the distance. We still rode some nice twisties, but slowly we are dropping elevation. With each elevation drop, the roads are getting flatter and straighter.
We all know that this town is a hoax? The real Cotopaxi is t is the second highest summit in Ecuador, reaching a height of 5,897 m (19,347 ft). It is one of the world's highest volcanoes.
This is Sammie Dinner in La Veta, CO. If I ever build a house, it is so getting this staircase.
Drats-gone are the mountains, the curves, and now they took the trees too!
You know those metal hoops at the end of gas pumps so you don't drive into them? Some high-country pizzazz
We had to backtrack a bit and take the easy option. Seems the ark service as closed the trail head by placing these trees across the trail head.
I was a bit remiss and didn't clean off one camera while we were in Ouray. Adorable town!
Talking to many folks before we left, there is no reason to have to carry camping kit. There are plenty of motels along the route at all price points.
Ouray Inn was delightful and highly recommended.
I will never swim in the ocean again. Should this claw be nearly the size of my paw?
Good bye dear Colorado.
