Day 13: Two hills?.....Felt more like Twelve!

Day 13: With a total distance of 50 miles today, we were able to sleep in and relax a little before setting off for Durango, Co. As you can see in the photos above, we definitely were able to experience a different type of climate; from the dry desert to the crisp mountain air with much greenery. We also found out that californians view mountains and climbs much differently than Coloradans. A lady had told us there were only two climbs where we thought there were about twelve. Once we got into Durango we were welcomed by the Rosenhahn Family. It was refreshing to be with Ryan's family as they treated us as their own. As the night rolled on we were able to spend some time with Ryan's girlfriend Laura and her mom, Mrs. Kurica for some late night nachos. We look forward to spending tomorrow's rest day sight seeing the beautiful state of "Colorful" Colorado.
