Today's ride was short on distance but long on wind. It was headwinds all the way all day. There we many gentle rollers which even on the downsides the best I could do was 16 mph because of the wind.
Grand Junction has beautiful red rock cliffs on the west side but after so many days of great rock formations I found the road side prairie dogs more interesting. The guard dogs would stand tall and chirp. And down the road scrambling dogs would dive Into their holes. The down the road guards would stand tall by their holes and pass the alarm down the line. Lots of scrambling and chirping all day.
Only the one picture today. The rockies as seen from just before Montrose. Tomorrow I'll be climbing up to Gunnison somewhere up there.
Not many services on tomorrows climb so I stopped by the mini market for supplies. They didn't have sardines but I thought of Tonya as I reached for a Slim Jim.
