Cotopaxi, Colorado on Friday

ON Friday, we went with some friends to their house in a small town, Cotopaxi, about 30 miles through the canyon from Canon City... The winding road thought the mts. followed the Arkansas River and was beautiful....
It was about 90 miles from here and quite a trip.. They met us here and I rode with her.. They actually own a house in Denver too but are going to retire in the canyon in a few years...

Here we are sitting on the deck of their house... Rina and Craig Reed... We seem to get along great considering they are about 10 years our junior... The town they live in has no telephone reception, tv... one small church, bar and grocery store... post office... there are 18 houses in the entire town and 100 people including the surrounding areas...


On the way we stopped at The Royal Gorge Bridge.. We did not pay or take alot of time to go see the Bridge except from a distance.. This is looking down into the Arkansas River. They were alot of white river rafters going by..




The is the longest suspension bridge in the Nation.. Some people were bungee jumping off, you could walk, ride or drive across... for a fee...!!!
