Fruita, CO

Today we left Vail, CO and headed towards home. But first we had to stop off in Fruita of course for some incredible riding!

I got some pix of Vail before we left. This is the river that runs right through the center of it and all its shops.

I have to say that Vail is a whack a dilly place in that you have this no more than 1/2 mile space between the highway and the mountain and it is built on in such a way that you cannot for the life of you figure out where the heck you are or where the heck you are trying to go. Getting lost in there is easy for even those that are good with directions!

Vail under construction....where are they adding things in this already very Euro feeling town? On top of everything else of course!

Then it was off to Fruita, CO to ride. The drive there was awesome. So green!

No matter how much I am exposed to beautiful areas for races, the wonderful world of beauty never ceases to amaze me.

Once riding this is a view of the river. See the singletrack in the distance? Heck ya!

And some cool rocks:

I am a die hard fan of rocks. They are sooo neat.

And what is this? A nice BLUE sky. FINALLY!

A lovely self portrait:

Someone pinch me!!
