Paul Foster, Julie Gazmararian's husband, sent these cheerful and inspiring photos from the Grand Lake Conoco control.
Larry Ide, Julie, Carl Andersen and Ann Trason enjoy the shade at the Conoco:
It's much more serene than when Foon and I encountered it on a Sunday:
A lilting breeze, shade, and refreshments!
Paul surprised rider Julie Gazmararian by following the Rider Progress and being there to greet her.
The riders are doing well today - less climbing, more sun, the birds singing.
And for tomorrow it's just an early-morning jaunt up to Cameron Pass, and then sailing home!
