Dodging the Roadkill: Riding the Rockies

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyColorado Springs, CO – I just returned from my first trip to Colorado.  What an experience!  I’ve never seen such beautiful country!

One of the many day trips I took was through the Rockies.  It took me a couple of miles before it REALLY hit me that I was actually in THE ROCKY MOUNTAINS!  Almost a surreal experience.

The first thing I noticed was the smell.  The cool crisp mountain air filled with the fresh smell of pine trees.  It’s a beautiful entrance to one of the world’s most famous landmarks.
