Registration for Ride the Rockies 2012 has now closed. I got mine in and expect to find out sometime this week whether I was drawn in the lottery for one of 2,000 slots. But, you know what? I’m pretty ambivalent about it.
On one hand, that ride has been on my bucket list for several years now. It can’t help but be an awesome ride. On the other hand, however, I absolutely hate that drive home from Colorado. If I get selected, I’ll have to make that trip alone. Having just returned from a ski trip out there, my only thoughts about the possibility of going again in June are simply not very enthusiastic.
As a side note, on the way home last Saturday, we drove through a ginormous dust storm. The above picture was taken about 3:00 in the afternoon on a day that was mostly blue bird skies. It took us about an hour to drive through it, and while there wasn’t really a lot of dust at road level, everything had a sort of brown tinge and we could smell the dust in the air. It was pretty interesting to experience.
