Colorado National Monument Park. Of course it wasn't an option for us.
The Park was breathe taking. Tight switchback climbs, canyons, cliffs,
Not so amazing was the two hours it took us to find the loop due to
poor or no route markings.
Or the 70 miles on a 4 lane highway.
Or the 100 degree heat.
Or the nasty headwind.
Or being talked out of "sagging" at mile 85.
Or or or or.
We ended with 110 miles and maybe 6000 feet climbing. We have a big
climb tomorrow. I am fried. So you only get a pic of my recovery meal.
