To Denver. 9-8-16

This morning Bill called his cousin Rich in Denver and we made plans to go to his house for the night.  We fueled and started East on US 40 with our first stop of the day being the Rocky Mountains National Park.

The trip to the top with a top elevation of over 12,000 feet was great. When we got to the top we walked up a walkway for about a 1/2 mile up a walkway to the top.  You breath a little harder at 12,000 feet.  The altimeter on my cycle maxed out after 9999 feet and switched to miles.  We were up 2.3 miles at the peak.
