And on the fifth day they rested

I'm sitting in an internet cafe watching the rain fall here in Crested Butte and realizing I left my freshly laundered cycling clothes draped across my bike to dry. Dang. Well, at least when the rain stops the clothes will dry out again rather quickly here at 8500 feet and almost no humidity.

Crested Butte is a perfect spot for a rest day. What a great town. All the locals ride cruiser bikes to get around and they are so welcoming.

Tomorrow we'll ride up Cottonwood Pass, which has 7 miles of hard pack and tops out around 12,300 feet. Thankfully it's only a 76 mile day (if we don't get lost, that is). Should be an adventure getting to that elevation.

More soon.... Tim
