Anyway, we made it back. Today we stopped and did a bit of cyclking on the Glenwood Canyon Bike Trail which goes for about 18 miles along the Colorado River as it spews through this spectacular cnayon.
It parallels the freeway, which is noted internationally as a marvel of engineering and of having low impact on the sights and scenery. They had the foresight to build a biking path integral with the projest.
I forgot how much heat affects Nora, and due to the way the canyon and road and cliffs merge together, there are a couple of short but mighty steep hills in the lower portion.
So we didn't go far in the 90 degree heat - after 4 miles, Nora said "NO MORE!!" and we went back.
Heat doesn't bother me, but it knocks Nora for a loop, and sometimes I forget that while I am comfortable, she is suffering.
No biking on Thursday - 112 degrees. But, stopped at a motel with an absolutely wonderful pool in which you can swim laps, so I got in about 25 laps in the pool for exercise. Felt really great!!
Hot here, and our air conditioner went out while away. It is fixed now, and the house is finally cooling down.
Had a great trip!!
