The Rockies

We've made it to Colorado Springs. Yesterday we had a build day; today
we have a day off. We covered about 650 miles in the 8 day stretch
previous to Colorado Springs. I'm kind of tired.

The last ride was 125 miles, and it was full of wind, hills, and
thunderstorms. It was intense. At one point my group had to huddle
together on someone's deck to get shelter from the rain and lightning.
Prior to that we had been blown off the road by a dust devil.

Today's the 4th, and since I've got family in Colorado Springs, I'll
be spending it with them.
