We turned off onto the dirt road which we were to follow for the remainder of the day. The rainstorms from the night before and early that morning made it for one mucky ride. After slipping out in some mudflats, we decided to take an early lunch and let the Colorado sun dry up the road. The roads dried up considerably and we were eager to hit the road. In classic fashion, Cam's front tire decided to blow up again. A quick repair job later we were on the road.
On our way to Cochetopa Pass, we met a Swedish couple doing the route - lots of Europeans! Today's riding featured a little bit different of a landscape... Colorado began as rolling hills, turned into giant mountains, and now in this southern portion became full of canyons, cacti, and rattlers. We hit the top of the pass and rolled down to a campsite for the night.
Cam beat Geoff in 200.
Awoke to a foggy morning
Lunch break. Not a bad view!
This is the best we could do for lunch today... The grocer in Sergents had one bag of old hot dog buns. We feasted like Jones Lake ducks.
