Day 46 - Royal Gorge, Colorado - Guffey, Colorado

Thursday, June 9,2016, 25.9 miles(41.7 km)

As my previous day was long my ride for the day would be quite short to Guffey, Colorado however there would be a fair amount of climbing to get to Guffey's elevation ast 8,658 feet.  The view from my campsite at Echo Canyon Campground was quite beautiful.

The scenery on the way to Guffey was varied and quite beautiful.  The road had a nice shoulder to ride on which makes it much easier to enjoy the scenery and the ride.

For the night I would be staying in Guffey, Colorado, a kind of unique rustic town which was nearly a ghost town but has now been revived a little.  Bill, a unique individual, has been hosting cyclists since 1976.  He has built these small bunk houses for cyclists to stay in.  He has a rustic shower facility but it has nice hot water.  There are two restaurants in town but only one was open on the day I was in town.  It served very good food.
