Bicycle Tour of Colorado - Day 5 – Day off in Telluride

Slept in until 8:30. Rode up to head of canyon with hopes of hiking up to Brides Veil Falls, but rock slides had closed the trails for the day. So we rode back into town and picked up another trail which ended up being more like a 4x4 trail w/plots of real estate for sale up the hillside. Still OK, since it had a great view of the city below. Trail lunch of baguette, brie, and prusciutto – yum. Back into town, stopped at a sporting goods store, then I rode around town looking for a place to fly my kite – the giant heap of mine tailings would have been great, but it’s no-tresspassing. I swear even the dogs are more laid-back in CO. Read, napped. Grocery shopped then went up to the condo as a group and prepared an amazing dinner – beef , prok, salad (lettuce, orange/yellow pepper, blue cheese, pinenuts), potatoes, brocolli, white wine, chocolate ice cream – so delicious! Jen downloaded everyones photos to her camera, and we watched a slideshow of all the shots from the trip so far. Gondola ride back down over Telluride was stunning, with the town all lit up after dark.
