    Day Seven - up the backside of Mount Lemon.
    Not a long day but a rough one.

    Today's Video:

    Lunch atop the mountain, 8,000 feet and 61F.

    It was 90F when we reached the bottom at 1430.

    Only 90:miles but there were 30 rough dirt miles going up the back gaining 6,000 feet. A few drops but no harm to the bikes or the riders.

    Tuscon to Alamosa, a long, cool, and windy ride.

    Only one picture came out, my phone quit due to the cold, battery expired.

    Relive came through again though, not sure how relive worked without the phone, maybe the InReach or the Garmin link.

    Day off tomorrow, going to go look at the Ridgeline damage.

    It was 17F in Alamosa when I got up at 0630, 19F at 0700 and 26F when I departed at 0810.
    I rode US 285 North to Denver a beautiful route up through Salida, past the site of recent deer strike, when I passed the site there were two deer crossing the road this morning but this time they were far enough away. The Temps stayed in the high 20's - low 30's until I was through Fairplay and across the South Park before I saw 40F. Once I dropped off the front range down through Evergreen into Denver the Temps climbed into the 50's and I saw 60 at Littleton where I stopped for gas and quick Wendy's lunch. I then ran I-25 North go Wheatland WY before taking some local roads over to US 85 for the run North to Spearfish. It hit 70F once along the way. The wind blew constantly from the NW from Cheyenne on.

    A great 3,500 mile motorcycle trip!
