Telluride CO to Delores CO 64 Miles. Colorado is almost complete

Today’s ride started out with a 16+ mile climb out of Telluride to Lizard Head Pass at 10, 222 feet which was about a 1,500 foot elevation change.

When we started the temperature was 54 degrees. A little cool but the climb took care of that.

After Lizard Head Pass the rest of the 48 miles was downhill. We stopped at the first rest stop in Rico but skipped the second rest stop and headed straight to the camp site in Delores River Camp. It has great shower facilities and laundry.

Tomorrow a new state, Utah. Colorado tested our endurance and we survived.

    Dang! I didn’t realize you were riding through Delores. I have friends there and would have sent them out to cheer you on!
