It was pretty cold last night.
Banana oatmeal and tea
Our campsite by the river.
I tripped over this last night and cut my knee, whoops.
We had a mile or two to warm up for the climb over Monarch Pass, supposedly the highest paved road in America and the highest on our trip.
Met Mike and James at the top — they’re going from DC to SF. Love it when we meet other cool cyclist to share stories with. Their blog is http://ahadventure.us/
Root beer and amazing strawberry rhubarb sodas in Cotopaxi.
Country Road 1A — it was so hot.
Fire on the hillside that has lasted for a week thanks to a bonfire some dumb kids started.
On the 96
We got into Westcliffe and didn’t feel like paying for an overpriced RV park campsite. The fire department turned us away so we went to the city park. A nice elderly couple said that was no long allowed and let us camp on their lawn. We used the park’s restrooms and ate on the grass. Hobo status.
