    We timed the ride to avoid the leaf peepers and to get a break from the mid-east heat. Both worked out great. However a hint of color is starting to show.

    They have been great high 50's to mid 60's at night and mid 60's to high 70's during the day.
    2 days of cloud with off and on sprinkles the rest was puffy clouds and bright blue.


    Pre covid it would have been hell to ride through on a bike, keep in mind that I am from a rural area and have a low tolerance for traffic.

    Well... Actually yes. Because I also just got back from 3 weeks of riding and camping, mostly in one of the many Colorado forests that's currently on fire, and due to the strict statewide fire ban, not a single peep was roasted. See ride report for details.
