Gunnison CO to Montrose CO. Most beautiful ride

This ride took us along the Blue Mesa Reservoir which is the largest lake located entirely within the state. We rode over 20 miles along the banks of this reservoir.

We then had 3 substantial climbs before descending into Montrose.

Today a friend from my childhood and adult live, Neddie Legg, joined me for the ride along the Blue Mesa Reservoir and then later surprised me by riding the last 7 miles into Cimarron. As you know numerous people have visited Kye and I along our journey but Neddie is the only one to join the actual ride. We appreciated it. After leaving Cimarron we had our final 4+ mile climb of the day. It was one of those climbs that just kept giving and giving.

Tonight most are camping at Rotary Park but Kye and I opted for a hotel room tonight. We needed WiFi access in the worst way as each of you can attest to since I have not posted in a while.

    My daughter was in visiting from Illinois this week, She came in for a short visit and to attend a wedding in the Pueblo area. I have been telling her all week that you are on the MS ride across america. Turns out she bumped into some of the riders at a reststop in Westmore. She asked someone what ride they were on and then learned it was the MS ride. You met her on our first Ride the Rockies ride. She was excited about the whole thing.
