Yes, some of it was. Down the Highline canal trail to the cherry creek to the Platte. It was 102 miles all totaled. I didn't get many pictures on the C-470 part of the trail. Just nothing worth photographing.

You seem amazing low key about riding 102 miles!! Yeesh! I'd be dead for a few days afterwards if I even finished it.

Well...I was thrilled that I could do it. I was prepared due mostly to all the advice on nutrition, food to carry, what to drink on the ride from the BF. The only problem I had was a slightly strained knee at the 80 mile mark. I celebrated with 2 beers while icing my knee. I felt fine after a good nights sleep

Sorry. I knew it was 102 miles. How many hours did it take?
