A short (around 5′ 3″) cycle ride to Chaffee Shuttle and our bikes were sitting on a rack and we were sitting on a bus. Ready for a 2 hour journey into Pueblo in Colorado. Once we arrived at the bus station it was a couple of blocks cycle to Enterprise Cars and we picked up a very nice Ford Expedition (cycling has improved our strength considerably) for our one way car hire.
It was straight on the interstate through Colorado Springs and up to Denver where a left turn took us west on the I70.
The drive went through some beautiful country and some very high passes in Colorado, stopping at Silverthorne (we cycled through this town 2 weeks ago) for a lunch break, a Wendy’s Burger, which is only marginally better than McDonalds.
Continued driving saw us leave Colorado and into Utah. This is very different, a lot of very dry looking plains and straight roads.
Finally at 7.00 pm we arrived in our motel for tonight in Green River Utah after a 450 mile drive so far, with another 250 to drive tomorow.
