I'm so tired from the past 3 weeks of playing in the sun but I couldn't resist getting out for yet another day so I dusted off the road bike for a ride up Left Hand and James Canyons.
It's a nice steady climb with a few steep bits but nothing too quad busting. In all it was about 28 miles taking the longer, flatter route to the start of Left Hand Canyon rather than Olde Stage which is a knee and quad busting 17% grade in some places. I was about in tears at the thought of that so I took the easier Old Lady Knees route but still had a decent climb up the canyons to Jamestown.
You can see fire damage in the upper right corner from a fire they had a year or two ago.
Hippies and Roadies and Subarus, oh my.
Instead I had my melted into a pile of mush because it's eighty fricken degrees outside energy bar down by the creek.
Supposed to be colder with some rain the next 2 days and I'm sort of looking forward to it. I'm exhausted and could use some rest never mind the dire need for moisture in general.
