The rest of teh story…

Here’s the rest of the story of the thunderstorms and glass. Sorry for the delay, but at least I got a map of it for you…

Glen Haven Switchbacks. A tough, but beautiful ride. Down Rt.36 along the big thompson river, turn left at Drake, then follow the northfork up through Glen Haven and up through two sets of double switch backs. The most thrilling part of the ride is when you finally top the crest at the top of the second switchback…The entire Estes Valley falls open in front of you with a view of the valley leading into town, the whole town, and all the great peaks of Rocky Mountain National Park. Wow.

Oh yeah, there was the thunderstorm that I timed perfectly…just as I got to glen haven it started thundering and lightening and poured down rain. I got a sticky bun and a diet coke and waited it out. Just as I got started again, I got a flat tire! A tiny, tiny shard of glass had pierced the tire, so I had to stop and repair both teh tire and the tube…but both held up just fine.
