First we got on the road for a LONG drive. Stopped over night in Lubbock then early out the door through New Mexico and into Colorado. We passed by Fort Sumner so we had to make a quick stop over at William Bonnys gravesite. the drive also included miles and miles and miles of this Ok it took forever to get to Durango but finally we made it and started to ride. We were a little tired from the long trip so we decided to do a short easy ride to warm up our legs Sunday morning. This is from the Animus city trail. It went straight up for like ever and we were VERY high up in the mountains, remember Im from sea level and this ride started out at 6500 feet The up was brutal but manageable, after some rest stops for the group. The down was fast and furious! so after being completely and totally spanked we went back to the house took a nap, ate lunch and decided to try another easy ride. This one wasnt as bad as the first. The telegraph trail was way more fun as a first day easy ride and we came back to it a few times throughout the week. is this a telegraph pole or a foreboding cross of death?
