Colorado has treated us well – beautiful mountains;
short afternoon thunderstorms that time themselves with the towns (and shelter!) we hit - for the most part;
another bicycle tourer who has basically lived from his bike for the last 14 years;
kind and generous friends (thanks Deb, Todd, and Cascade!!);
grandmothers and friends who take us in as their own;
and amazing hot springs at the end of a 72 mile ride.
Now we are taking our time through the mountains and excited about coming into Denver!!
A note from Joyful Journey Hot Springs:
And at whatever risk.
To let life leak out
To let it wear away
By the mere passage of time
To withhold giving it and spreading it
Is to choose nothing.
-Sister Mary Corita Kent
