|So, here is Jed Clampett ready to leave on his epic journey. With the way I have the bike loaded down I was leaving for a month or something.|
|Left the house later than I wanted to, 9:00. I-25 went fine, but there was a lot of construction on I-70. Had to stop and put the rain gear on, rained on some, but it stopped before I reached Glenwood Springs and I started getting warm. Had Lunch in Glenwood Springs, took the rain gear off again.|
|After Carbondale, 133 was a nice road. I was doing about 60 when a guy two up flew past me. I decided to speed up and see how fast he was going, 95 to 100. Stopped for my first picture shortly after that.|
|Had to stop and put the rain gear back on. After the clouds cleared it got hot again. It was 97 degrees in Montrose when I stopped again and removed the rain gear. Stopped in Placerville for a picture, I liked the look of the store.|
|A few stops along 145 for some more scenery pictures.|
|I stopped in Rico, got the pictures coming into town. I was going to get dinner here, but the town was closed.|
|I have often complained about the lack of good Mexican food in Colorado, but I did find some in Delores Colorado. The clerk at the Hotel is originally from Switzerland. We had a nice talk about bikes and what route I was taking out. He suggested a little side trip which I did take, you will read about it on tomorrow’s page.|
Mileage for the day 515.
