Days Seventeen & Eighteen: May 16 & 17, 2007

The Beck’s have a wonderful home on 22 acres just outside of Bailey, CO. They moved here earlier this spring from Santa Rosa, CA. Apparently I was their first guest.

Here is a shot of the Beck’s, left to right, Sam, Judah, Eric, , Aidan, Rachel and the newest edition (yet to be named of course):

A few shot shots of the home as well as a shot of their view from the back deck:

I stayed an extra day to insure that I could get my 7500 mile service completed on the bike and to give us more time together. We caught up, played with the boys, watched movies, walked the land, and generally had a great time.

Thank you Eric & Rachel for your hospitality!

Day Sixteen: Tuesday, May 15, 2007

There just wasn’t anything worth stopping for today — so sorry, no pictures. I started the day out with several great phone calls, and it put me leaving just after noon.

The scenery on this section of the trip was nominal at best. Or, maybe it was “great” and just couldn’t compete with the “astounding” views in Yellowstone.

In short, today was more about internal processing and covering ground than anything else. I arrived at Eric and Rachel Beck’s to a warm welcome from everyone but Sam. Apparently Sam still thinks I’m frightening.

Today’s route:
