More Riding in Lake Pueblo State Park

It's still hot.  Today it hit 94.  94!  It's the end of September, already.  Yesterday we went out to Lake Pueblo State Park again with the mountain bikes.  We failed to find the single track in the area, and ended up riding the dirt road network in the north end of the park.  It was good, lots of up down, and no willy inducing sidehill trails.
Last night there was a pretty good sunset.

Today was road riding.  Laurence (brother) bought a new carbon Trek.  He hasn't ridden in a couple years, so we did a short hilly ride in the park.

Laurence is on the right.  He's resting after a pretty good climb.

The dam.  It's part of the Fryingpan-Arkansas Project.  It's one of a series of dams that control flooding and provide water for irrigation. There is a fish hatchery there, and many people come to catch the fish.  If you're interested in huge public works projects, click on the link.  It's pretty impressive.

The reservoir again.

It was a good day.  Laurence is very happy when he's on a bicycle, even when the road points up.  We're going back tomorrow for more of same.  Sunday the weather is supposed to tank for a couple of days, with hail in the forecast. Hail! I hate hail.
