Here are a couple of shots from our visit in Fall of 2008. I hadn't done any real mountain biking in years, and my wife wasn't a mountain biker at all. So I suggested a little ride...we started where the continental divide trail crosses the highway at the top of Wolf Creek pass...and climbed for over an hour from there.

Our little ride ended up being 20 miles and about 3.5 hours. We very nearly got tragically lost.

Not only did the missus not kill me...she agreed to move here!

I think these were from our first trip to the farmers' market...we try to go every week during the season. It's great to support local farms and businesses.
