Here I am with a south view of the road. You have the view of Pikes Peak and the foot hills of the Rockies. It is hard to put into words how I feel every time I look at the mountains and to be able to see them every day. It's a true blessing.
Here is the gorgeous view we had all the way back home. We went about 40 miles out of town and, of course, 40 miles back again (sigh). We had one annoying note. After taking this last picture my camera battery died! I was perturbed with myself for not watching the battery more closely. But oh darn, we have to go out that way again. There are still a few scavanger hunt pics to get out that way that we couldn't get due to the dead camera. Hmmmm...
We didn't meet much traffic on this day. It was like a stroll in a park. At one of the stops we made there were chickens by the side of the road. They were set back enough that we didn't need to worry about them, but they were free to go where their hearts desired. I wanted so much to get a pic of them with my motorcycle, but alas, the camera was dead by this time (uggg!!). No, chickens are not on the scavanger list. I just love chickens. I just know any MSR members reading this is getting a kick out of my misery (lol). I've driven this route twice before and never noticed as much as I did today. It was a lot of fun. If the weather goes as predicted, we have a 200 mile trip on Sunday that is planned by the Mountain Shadow Riders. It's suppose to be nice that day, please send up prayers that it will be and that we have safe travels.
Safe Journeys in Your Part of the World,
