Lovely day. Up early to sunshine and blue skies, coffee, and a quick trip to Good Earth. Spent the day on the road. First to Westcliff, then to Rye. Wind was whipping but the temps weren't too bad, and the scenery more than made up for the rest. Aspens were still looking sharp. Especially in the high valley between the two towns.
Stopped at Bishop's Castle. A first for me. My god what an astonishing place! Saw Bishop himself, knocking around in a bobcat, moving stones. Quite a character, judging from the signs and proclamations around the place. Pretty sure I wouldn't want to spend a hard winter with him, or even an easy one. Guy's got a lot of axes to grind.
