Great ride today.

Solo ride on flat course: 50 miles, about 1000 feet of climbing and just over 20 mph average. Almost no wind, clear blue skies. Temps from 61-76 degrees. Only saw a about five cars. Great views of the Snowy Range.

That would be the difference between WY and NY! But got tell you that a few years ago I would have seen one car. Population growth overflow from CO has hit southeastern WY.

The worst thing is all the junk they bring in with them. Seems like many new residents of SE Wyoming have a secret desire to start there own mini-junkyard. Plus, we have NO trees on the prairie to hide all of that crap. Bummer.

p.s It should have been "Whoa Nellie!"
