Lizard Head Pass

From Mesa Verde we headed north, enjoying an amazingly starey night and crystal clear morning at Rico hotsprings.  Then in serch of low angle riding we fumbled apon the meadows at Lizard Head Pass.  3 days of riding comenced, once again challenging our lungs at over 10,000 feet above sea level.  The first day was short, but the next day we rode it from when the sun hit it in the morning till the afternoon's shadow had formed a thin crust on the surface.  That night instead of traveling on we melted snow to refill our water bottles.  Waking up to another day of riding, this day turned warm, getting into the 40's maybe and it was like spring skiing! 
From there we moved on to Telluride, where we watch the Patriots win the game agaist the Broncos and where met some super fly girls, watched their hockey game and ended up staying with them in Placerville for a night and a day. 
From there we moved on to Miramonte Reservoir outside of Norwood where we chilled in the sun reading books, trying to weave baskets (not as easy as it looks!) and making a few christmas tree decorations. 
Now we find ourselves in Castle Valley, UT for the Holidays...  which we hope all you readers are enjoying! Happy 3rd night of Hannuka, and Happy Solstice!
