Day 28: 0 miles - Our first rest day so far was only restful in that we didn't touch a bike. We had a beautiful drive last night over state highway 14 over Cameron Pass and down the Poudre River to Fort Collins, CO. We grabbed a few things in town and then headed out to the ranch to hang out with the rest of the staff.
Andy and I were not really sure what we were going to do around the ranch while everyone else had their responsibilities to take care of. Dicky Prince, the ranch owner, took care of any chance we had at being bored. Right after breakfast, he put us to work, fixing the ice machine, installing automatic door closers and then unloading and sorting the food shipment for the week. I think we both enjoyed earning a little of our keep and it was a great way to get to know a bunch of the people working there. We're planning on staying to night and heading back to Walden first thing in the morning to get back on the road. We gotta get one more gourmet ranch meal in before we head back.
