I got some much needed sleep last night, and was up bright and early to get my ride on.  It was drizzling when I walked out of the hotel, so I headed downtown to get some coffee at Aspen.

I was welcomed by ‘Tater, at least I think that’s his name. He seems to be the town greeter, and is always smiling.  I always see him when I’m out there and he always seems happy and cheerful.

I picked up some gifts at Over the Edge. They recommended heading for 18 road before more rain came in. The rain held off for a while, and I managed to hit Joe’s, Chutes and Ladders. I stopped back at the car and was heading for the Edge when it uncorked.  I short cutted back to Joe’s and cut back up Kessel.  I was completely soaked, and luckily hadn’t picked up too much mud.

The forecast called for more rain, so I decided to head home.  It rained all the way to Vail, and was snowing pretty good on the Pass.  It was snowing like crazy at the Divide, I’m betting Loveland will be open for skiing next weekend (if it’s not already). So, now, safe at home, some images are posted in the album.
