This morning I motored to the ski country of Breckinridge, CO. What a beautiful ride it was. I love approaching new mountain ranges. It can give you a real sense of how tall the Rockies are by the amount of time it takes to reach the base of the mountain.
I made some altitude again today, but not nearly as high as Pikes Peak. This was the second time I crossed the Continental Divide
I arrived in Breckenridge in early afternoon and ate at Bubba Gump’s Restaurant and Market.A little cheesy yes, but I had a good grilled fish sandwich none the less.
Not much action was going on in Breckenridge quite frankly. It’s off season obviously but it’s a pretty town.
The town was too pricey for me to stay the night. The predicted freezing weather kept me from camping this evening so I got a room at a motel in the nearby town of Frisco
Tomorrow I am going to head south back to Albuquerque. I will make a couple more stops along the way.
In Albuquerque, I plan to do some minor maintenance on my bike and see the first day of the Albuquerque Balloon Festival before I head back to Ohio.
