I left a little before 8:00 this morning. It was only about 55 degrees so I dressed warm and headed back out on to 160. When I got to Del Norte, I turned on to 112 and then on to 285. Most of the ride was across flat farm land with the mountains off to the side. When I got to Poncha Springs, I turned east on 50 towards Canon City. Again, it was mostly flat farmland and not all that scenic.
About 1:00 I decided that I’d start heading home. The GPS said I was about 1,800 miles from home and I figured that if I could get a couple of hundred miles out of the way today, I’d be able to make it home by Sunday evening.
I stopped about 6:00 because I could see storm clouds, lightning, and a rainbow to the east and rather than ride into the rain, I decided to stop for the night instead. I’m about 1,450 miles from home now in Salina Kansas.
