Day 11: 491 miles, Colorado Springs, CO to Grand Island, NE

Written on: Monday July 16th, 2007

With about 1000 miles to go in two days, Monday morning found me and Ted searching for a new rear tire. That was found, as was a shop to install it. Woody, the proprietor, spent a couple hours entertaining us with stories of 1000 mile nighttime trips through the desert.

Colorado is supposed to be nice and mountainous and relatively pleasant. This did not hold true in NE CO, which was kinda like Nebraska. Scorching temps forced us to a state park for an afternoon swim. This turned out to be where they kept the 7 trees in the county.

Then we rode to Nebraska.
