We descended into a town called Como where we had planned to spend the night. Unfortunately this turned out to be a ghost town with no services at all. We had to make a decision - go off route on a busy highway for 15 miles or continue on the route and camp wherever we saw appropriate. We decided to continue biking blindly into the Colorado landscape. Near sundown we approached an old deserted recreational area. We saw that there were empty stables that provided a nice shelter from the rain Colorado promised to provide. We set up shop there and hoped to God the cows weren't going to return for a visit.

The Collegiate Range!
Boreas Pass - a perfect spot for a catnap.
