      Day 3: Winter Park

      July 24, 2022 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 66 °F

      We got out early this morning and drove to Winter Park. It was about a 1.5 hour drive through the mountains. We rented bikes from Epic Mountain Sports. The guys were super nice and very helpful. Giving us a great route for today (actually a couple) and answering all my questions.

      We rode out taking Creekside, but made a wrong turn somewhere and ended up on Flume. When we popped out, I thought we were on Creekside and furthered our wrong turnedness. We rode a dirt rode to Iko. Creekside was nice and easy, Flume was uphill, but still ridable! The dirt road was horrible. All uphill and never ending!! Iko was the reward for that. It was two miles of downhill fun!! But this was also about the time we heard thunder! ⚡We took the Chainsaw trail out, I think it was fun, but I was super focused getting off the mountain before those really black clouds got to us! ⛈️🌩️⛈️

      We made it back to the truck (our rental) just as it started to rain. I had packed a lunch for the trail, but didn't get to use it because of the weather. We sat in the truck and ate it as the rain just poured down! ⛈️

      We called and the hotel has our room ready so we made our way over there. After cleaning up, we went to Hideaway Brewing where we had a flight of some really good beers. We walked around town and shopped before heading to the Mountain Bistro for dinner: gyros. Then we got some ice cream and went back to the hotel. It was pouring again and Gary left his coat in the room. So we just went in and got ready for our adventure tomorrow!

      Colorado bound

      June 29, 2017 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 18 °C

      We said good bye to Ashley and the girls this morning and then drove to Fraser, Colorado to spend the next few days with Meghan and Randy. The landscape was so varied on this drive. Kansas was flat, farm fields were in abundance with lots of wind towers. Then the majestic Rocky Mountains popped up in front of us in all of their beauty. The are simply spectacular though I will admit, I'm not a fan of traveling over the Berthoud Pass in an RV. The views are outstanding but the hairpin turns were not my idea of a fun time. Robert had to remind me to breathe. It's off to Rocky Mountain National Park tomorrow. We're hoping to see lots of wildlife.Read more

      12:30 pm Friday: Descending the Rockies

      April 1, 2022 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 32 °F

      We crossed The Continental Divide and are now descending. It's much snowier on the western side of the Rockies. I have no idea if that's always the case but it seems to be true right now.
