The journey so far, with today’s ride in blue
Heading south through the Arapaho National Widelife Refuge out of Walden towards Granby
One of my faves of the trip
My little camelbak is not built for hauling gear but I managed a provisional solution
Cleared mudslides on Colorado 125
First Aspen sighting
Today was the closest I have ever felt to true wilderness (the nice kind, where you want to hang out) on a road bike
We have crossed the Continental Divide several times on this trip. This was the peak elevation for the day. It keeps getting higher.
Burned but beautiful, descending into Granby from the Continental Divide through the Arapaho National Forest
