Riding Colorado (Photos)

I took a trip to visit #1 son during the holiday weekend. We did a couple of long bike rides. One in the mountains and one on the roads, paths and trails of Boulder. I took lots of pictures and put them on my blog HERE

I've been to Boulder several times. I took a week long course at UC Boulder one summer and rented a mtn bike for the week to ride back and forth to class. I was going to ride on the Walker Ranch trail above Boulder, but the "Beware of Mountain Lions" sign at the trailhead convinced me, a single rider, to find some place with a few more people. Great pictures.

I am in Colorado now. I forgot my camera but I am glad someone took pictures. The bike paths are wonderful. I was in Boulder Tuesday and the view is breathtaking.
