N3: No further problems with my bike. Lighting issues fixed and the rest of our ride was very pleasant. The scenery in Colorado is spectacular. The photos just cant describe what we saw. In the pictures, the trails look easier, the mountains look smaller and the beer looks flatter. Day 3s ride was great. I had a blast. The loop we took from our jump off point to CR-12, en route we came across a place that must have been located at the top of the world! 3WM took a great panoramic photo of the scenery. He could probably give us a better description of the location. We made our way to Salida, where we met up with two other ride buddies (the aforementioned Corndogg & JB Smoove Grooves). We decided to try our hand at white water rafting. We went to American Adventure Expeditions, and paid the big $ for the if you fall out of the raft, well meet you back in Wichita white water ride. Our guide told us he has never seen the Arkansas River water level so high. It was great fun. The water was 42 Fn degrees, I meant 42 degrees F. We had to rent wetsuits. I looked like an elephant seal in the damn thing but at least it didnt make my ass look fat! Seriously, you ought to check AAE out.
