Dodging the Roadkill: Rocky Mountain High – Part 2

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – I landed in Colorado Springs at about 3:00pm after a long day in the saddle.  The ride was a mix of calm, cool traveling through Wyoming, then an absolute circus navigating down I-25 through Denver.  I was tired and ready for a shower.

This would be my second visit to Colorado having been here in 2017.  It was magnificent then and it’s magnificent now.  Just having the Colorado mountains in the background makes it so beautiful.  And, the altitude reminds me that I’m not in Kansas anymore.
