It was especially pretty driving up Maroon Bells Road.

September 28, 2014 - Sunday morning the weather was totally different. . .rain rain rain. This is Mt. Sopris.

The drive home was terrible. We left Carbondale at 12:30 and never got home until 5:30 (note: going up it took us 2 hours and 40 minutes).
At least we had some pretty scenery to look at.

So proud of Madison and Nova. They ran in the VERY competitive Grand Veteran classes in extremely hot weather.
