The morning began with an unexpected start. Our hosts Max and Hillary suggested we take the gondola (free public transit in the town of Telluride) to the top of the canyon to get us back on route while cutting out a forty minute climb. I am not much for heights and as I was explaining that I was going to back out the attendant put my bike on the back and I had to board the gondola. I am glad he did because the ride was smooth and there were some great views.
Until tomorrow . . .
