Photos From I-70 In Colorado
The ride from Grand Junction to Denver, CO
Wednesday morning, I continued my ride to the 70th Annual Black Hills Rally and Races from Grand Junction, CO. I was doing well on the amount of miles traveled per day, so I was able to stop a little more frequently and enjoy the Colorado beauty found along I-70. This included going through the Eisenhower Tunnel, which is over 11,000 feet in elevation. This resulted in the temperatures dropping to the high 70’s and low 80’s. After spending the last few days in the high 90’s and low triple digits I had to bundle up with a long sleeved shirt and warm gloves.
I did stop outside of Denver to join one of my brothers for an early dinner. The food was okay, but I got there at shift change or something, so my medium rare steak ended up being well done. Oh well, the company and spaghetti were good. After dinner, I continued on to Cheyenne, WY. Only 320 miles to go!
