Aroundegon Day Twelve: Land's Inn to Monument

I met this comically cute puppy at the store in Kimberly.

Distance: 30 miles (of 420 total)
Elevation Gain: 1,000 feet (of 19,400 total)
Deer Spotted: 7 (three of which with four points or more)

Yesterday was a long day so I made today a short one, both on the bike and on the blog. Here are three quick things worth noting:

  • I stayed completely dry today, despite the forecast calling for thunderstorms.
  • I was only passed by two cars on my entire 30 mile ride.
  • I'm now over halfway through my trip.

I'm staying in Monument tonight at a motel with WiFi (hence the flurry of blog posts) and then getting back to serious riding tomorrow. Three mountain passes, sixty miles, and camping. Hopefully the sunny forecast holds true.
