The sunrise was amazing coming over the mountains. We were in the middle of a plain with mountains all around us. The last 30 miles of yesterday's ride was a straight road into Alamosa. Well today we made a couple of turns in town and then it was a straight shot north to Poncha springs.
The first sag stop was Carries. In the background was the great sand dunes national park.
The road was long and straight and seemed to go on forever. When we finally came to a curve we all cheered.
How's this for a view.
We biked to the mountains and then between them and slowly started to climb. I was pretty tired.
By the time we got to the top. I was hoping there was no more climbing. To my delight we had a down hill ride about 10 km long. At 50km per hour I was taking pictures.
