50 miles
4 hours of ride time.

When I woke up this morning, I had no idea where I was going.  Luckily I stumbled upon US-6 and rode along the colorado River until I hit another dead end.  I had to jump a barbed wire fence and continue on the freeway for 15 miles.  Those 15 miles were increble and they actually had a  bike path along the freeway occasionally if the freeway was not ridable.  Imagine a canyon with the Colorado River flowing between two large bluffs and a freeway etched out of the side of one of those bluffs and then a throw a bike path in there for good measure.

Stopped in Palisades, a small little wine town where everyone says hello and then actually waits to hear your response.  I finally found US-6 after riding on I-70 for a long period of time.  It appeared that a storm was rolling in and luckily I avoided it.

I rode by Splizio Field where Sarah Palin was giving a speech.

Staying with Kylie and Reece at Mesa State College, good family friends.

Heading to Colorado National Monument.
