I was very nervous about today. The uphill, narrow roads scared me, but the downhill narrow roads terrified me. Honestly I finished the day feeling fantastic! It was scary, but all in all proceeding with caution and respecting the space of the cars, trucks and even bigger trucks made it a pretty comfortable and exciting day. The second three miles we stopped a lot to catch our breath and let our legs rest, but the last twenty made it all worth it. I can’t tell you exactly how fast I was able to go but it was definitely very fast and a moment or two I believe it was slightly over 30 .
I am so glad we took the short ride the day before and took some time to acclimate to the altitude. Observations from today are I would never have done it comfortably without my mirror and my Ebike unquestionably was my friend. Although it didn’t take away the work it definitely made it bearable and almost enjoyable as I could somewhat enjoy the scenery.
My hubby is definitely my hero as he completed every mile of that uphill without any assistance and that is simply amazing. He is one tough man!!
We spent some time at three different churches in the area, explored downtown Taos, a little, ate lunch at Michael’s Kitchen and went to Walmart. We wanted to go out the the Rio Gorge bridge, but decided to keep that for another time (an additional 20+ miles wasn’t tempting enough today). After doing some laundry we ate calzones at the Italian restaurant across from our hotel (they were so good), grabbed some breakfast sandwiches for the morning and now we are prepping for tomorrow and heading to bed. Tomorrow is going to be a tough one, but the roads appear much more friendly.
Hi! I am a daughter of our Heavenly Father, wife of David, mother of 5 perfectly created human beings, and nana to one precious baby boy. I have been married for almost 30 years that have all been uniquely amazing. Our kids are 21, 19, 19, 17, and 14 and our grand baby will soon be 1.
