Snowcatcher found a snake napping several feet above ground in the leaves.
Just Another Day In The Saddle
Snowcatcher and I got an afternoon ride in yesterday between t-storms. You probably can guess where. I'll leave it at that. In the lower photo the South Platte River flows several more miles before exiting onto the western-terminus of the Great Plains.
The twisty turny climb to upper Lenny's Bench is a good huff and puff.
Lenny's Bench is often the turnaround point for rides. However, several long rides begin here as well.
Trail 800 and the Colorado Trail split here (Lenny's Bench).
Thanks for reading!
