I didn’t sleep well last night because I couldn’t get comfortable, so morning came too soon. I did chicken out on riding back down the mountain so we borrowed a neighbor’s trailer and hauled me down that way. Because of that I got started a little later than I wanted.
I made my way to Colorado Springs and stopped at The Garden of the Gods for lunch and pictures. Riding through the park was a lot of fun, but I think I will come back on a non holiday weekend because it was a little too congested to really take my time.
It was probably good that I couldn’t take my time because between the late start and the sightseeing, I was seriously behind schedule. The 75 m.p.h. speed limit on I-25 did help me make up some time though. I got in to Douglas, WY at about 7:30 in the evening.
