LRLR Day 6 – The Rio Grande
Today we took a gentle, sweeping ride along the Rio Grande. Unfortunately, the photos I took with my phone didn’t fully capture all the shades of green. It was very beautiful, even through a little bit of rain.
We also made stops in Lake City and at the Slumgullion Summit (Elev 11,530 Feet) in Creede. Lunch in Creede at the Arp Restaurant is worth noting. The folks there were so welcoming and the food was delicious! I overheard many in our group saying how much they liked this little town and look forward to going back again someday.
We dodged some frightening storm fronts on our ride from Creede to Salida, but managed to beat most of the rain. We had a fun dinner at 50 Burger, complete with a Bimini Ring Game, Giant Jenga and Corn Hole.
