On to the next state..... CO

Boxwork in Wind Cave

Boxwork in Wind Cave

I’ve been in CO for a few days now, but one quick bit about SD: go to Wind Cave National Park, take the candlelight tour of Wind Cave.  You explore the caves 15 stories down by candlelight. The formations are crazy and the guides are really knowledgeable. It’s worth all 12 Amurican dollars. 

So I’m in CO now.  I rolled into Denver on Thursday and made a pit stop at a friend’s place for a quick load of laundry and a shower (it had been 5 days, it was needed). He was working the next few days so I blasted up into the mountains.  I seriously fucking love it up here.  You can camp pretty much wherever, there are organic grocers all over, and the scenery is unreal. And so far the weather has been cooperating.

Yesterday I got some pretty odd looks when I was working out at my campsite (which was 30 ft. from the road).  HAHAHA, shit was hilarious.  One car actually stopped and watched for 5 seconds. They must have either liked what they saw, or were just flabbergasted watching a guy do kettlebell swings at 10,800 ft in a mountain pass. HA!  Yeah right, who am I kidding? They were telling their kids ‘THAT, is what a jackass looks like.’  

Anyways I’ve just come off Mt Bierstadt today, I’m super hungry, and my pizza has just gotten here! Priorities!
