Wonderful day!

Great weather and more sunlight makes me happy! Today was great, only had 1 of 2 jobs, weather was beautiful, got off earlier than I have been from job1, and well there was more hours of light. So what did I do, wasted it happily on a bike! Went and rode Waterton to the Colorado Trail and a little up that (not much). This really got be physched for my bikepacking trip this summer. I need to start training a bit but man I am ready for it!

Wow, those pics made me homesick. I'm a Pueblo native but haven't been home in a great many years. I need to do something about that.

Makes me homesick too - Grew up in Idaho Springs and rode my bike all over those Rockies, pictures like this make me want to move back. What am I doing here in the desert? lol
