2 Wheels, 6 Months, 1 Adventure
Friday the Thirteenth, my lucky day… I am in Colorado and I am starting to climb into the mountains.
I woke up with Rob at 4:30 am and shared breakfast together before he went to work. At 6:45 am Pueblo was walking up… Lots of turns and twists before the climbing started.. It’s Mr huffy and puffy time…..
The first town was Wetmore where the PO was the happening place.. Florence was a lot busier… The traffic was non stop to Canon City….. I loaded up with water and food and started the big climb. The wind was in my face and then shifted around my right side until it started to blast on my back… YES!!!
I rode the wind till 7:30 pm when I saw a great place to sleep on BLM land…. My lucky day…..
Pueblo, CO To North of Canon City.
