  • Road Trip: Day 31

    Posted on September 28th, 2012 tcorzett 1 comment

    Due to the snow/ice on Pikes Peak today turned into a “Recovery Day”… so I recovered! For the first time in longer than I can remember I didn’t set an alarm for this morning. When I eventually rolled-over, debating to get out of bed, it felt like noon… but it was still only 10am.

    I double-checked the webcams at the summit of Pikes Peak, but despite having a few visitors, there was still too much snow for me to make the trip.

    Having a whole day with zero plans, I quickly set to work making plans for the day.

    After getting some breakfast I went to Walmart for a new razor then headed to the Garden of the Gods. I had planned on only driving around the park, but after seeing all the great rock formations I parked and walked around a bit.

    The Garden of the Gods was very impressive, even if it wasn’t a “driving road”. I was even able to find a place to pullover to take my daily photo of the G8.

    I’ve been on the road for a month and started to run low on clean clothes, so I headed back to my hotel and did some laundry. With nothing else planned for this evening, I think I’ll relax for a while before getting a good night sleep.

    Tomorrow I head back into the mountains of Colorado for some fun on twisty roads. I’ll be going to someplace warm… where the beer flows like wine… where beautiful women instinctively flock like the salmon of Capistrano… I’m talking about a little place called Aspen!

      “Oh, I don’t know Todd. The French are assholes.”


      “Hmmm, California! Beautiful!”
