We're Back!!!

Ever try taking pictures from the back of a motorcycle? Sometimes going 70 miles an hour?? We took about 1300 pictures, thankfully taking that many there are some decent ones. Notice the water on the windshield and the wet road......we rode in rain many days, on some really scary roads, with no guard rails and steep drop offs!!!
Yes, look closely, that is sleet on the ground at the top of Pikes Peak!! And sleet coming down in the picture, that is why it is so light looking. There was thunder, lightning, and sleet. Thank goodness we rode the train up!!
The ride was beautiful......even the scenes in the rearview.....
Monarch the summit and at the bottom....What a beautiful lake!!
A timed always feel so silly waiting for the camera to click!!
I HAD to take this picture......will get rid of the "not so good" photos and post a link. We had a wonderful time, it was hard coming back....especially to 100+ temps when it was usually anywhere from 50 to 75 degrees while we were in Colorado!!! We are ready to go back!!!
