Awoke this morning and the winds were calm. Finished writing yesterdays blog page, called Darrell near Boulder and we agreed to meet in Greeley for coffee. Darrell, aka Coluralado, had offered to show me some Colorado mountains and photo ops.
After meeting at Starbucks, we rode into Fort Collins to meet Randy and Tammy, the owners of Unique Rides, the Colorado Ural dealer. Randy gave us several ideas for places nearby we could ride to.
Here are the photos from today.

No shortage of rocks here
Darrell, thank you for taking the time to show me some of Colorado. Hope to be back soon for more.
The last Colorado post office (closed) before crossing into Wyoming. Made it to Laramie WY fopr the night. Quit early today. After fighting the winds to cross the mountains to Laramie, I was beat. Felt like someone put me in a clothes dryer to tumble for five hours.
Forgot to mention that Da'mit had a run-in yesterday in western Kansas. Saw it coming, moving too fast, rolled in front of us. could not avoid it.
Da'mit got nailed by a tumble weed.
The severe storms have been all over the western states this week. They keep saying tomorrow will be quiet, but..... am to ride up thru Thermopolis WY on the way to Billing, Montana tomorrow. Will check the forecast before leaving in the morning.
Many thanks to all for following along on this ride.
