Ride the Rockies – day 3

Today was much tamer. The first 34 miles from Delta to Montrose was the roughest road on the ride so far.  The last 34 miles were from Montrose to Ouray.  My time was 6 hours with the stops and Nicole finished about 1/2 hour ahead of me.  The last 20 miles were uphill but fairly gentle until the last 3 miles into town.  Of course, our motel is at the top end of town – more uphill.  Ouray is at an elevation of 8711 feet and tomorrow we go to 10,000 plus.  We saw plenty of snow along side the road yesterday and we will probably see more tomorrow.
