Well, we left New Mexico after 2 months. What an awesome place (Northern New Mexico)
The final Friday I was going to do my final 13-miler before my half marathon Sunday (the 13th) in Estes Park, CO. It didn't go so well. I was trying a new trail, one that was in Tesuque (where we stayed) and went to the ski resort. Unfortunately the trail disappeared into seasonal rivers after 2 miles. So, I turned around and ran back to the car. Unfortunately I tripped along the way and went flying down the slope. Ouch
I woke up early Saturday (5am) to get my 13-miles in on the usual trails and then off we went
We loaded up The Grumpus...
Here are a few scenes along the way in New Mexico:
It was hot and did hit 100
And, sadly, leaving New Mexico...
...but back in beautiful Colorado
After several hours we passed through Colorado Springs. I think this is Pike's Peak through the rain and a dirty windshield
A few hours later and we were in Denver
We arrived at the house and had a few cocktails on our back porch, watching storms in the distance
Pics of Boulder in the next update...
