Colorado – Here we come!

Today was the day that Jamie and I had been waiting for. It is always nice to spend time with the family and we enjoy our weekend in Red River, but now it was our time. Just the two of us. It is a time for us to connect and to remind ourselves why we love each other so much. I look forward to this trip every year. Expectations were high and I knew we would not be disappointed.  The family loaded up and started down the hill to Albuquerque. We were headed the opposite direction. Our destination was Gunnison Colorado. We were going to spend a week camping and exploring one of our favorite states. Colorado!

We headed out NM 522 up into Colorado by way of Alamosa and South Fork. We got to CO 149 and this really starts the great riding portion of the trip. Great views, awesome smells and lower temps. 

It also take us to our first little town that we love to stop in. Creede Colorado. Its a little town, but always has a good energy. We stopped and had lunch at one of our favorite places. Kips Grill is always a great place to stop for a good burger and entertainment. Today they had a little band from Ruidoso NM. It was a wonderful place to take a break.
