Day 15: The beauty for Colorful Colorado continues

Day 15: We started our day off with a "full-filling" Fathers Day breakfast with the Rosenhahn Family, Laura and Mrs. Kurica, as we once again got our carbs in. After saying our goodbyes (always a tough thing to do) we left the beautiful, adventurous town of Durango, in sight for Pagosa Springs, Colorado. The scenery along the road was so awe-striking that it took the edge off of todays ride. We experienced everything from rivers and lakes, to horses and cows, and even a coyote running across the street no further than 5 feet to your very own Matt (Dr.) Kaiser. After an 80 mile day we stopped at the base of Wolf Creek Pass where we will start tomorrow morning's intense climb up the pass. After grocery shopping in Pagosa Springs, we then went to Bear Creek, a local hot spot for dinner. As you might be familiar with the term "what a small world," it could not have been any truer for us as we came to find out that our waitress in the tiny town of Pagosa, Colorado was an Azusa Pacific University alumni of '85. As we have finished all our duties early such as setting up camp, and cleaning the bikes we have some free time. Tonight we plan on visiting the natural hot springs and enjoy the rest of the night at Wolf Creek Run motor-coach site.
God Bless,

Delighting in God's divine encounters... What a delight to meet you at the Bear Creek Saloon and Grill in Pagosa Springs on Sunday evening. Hope your tired muscles enjoyed soaking in the Hot Springs.
Godspeed and watch out for swarms of insects in Iowa!
