Day 67 in East Glacier

Posted by xc2009 on July 16, 2009 at 1:20 PM

We are living large in East Glacier, MT while staying with Jo and Sam (contacts we made through other cyclists).  Check out our photos---finally a few more have been added since Chicago.  More to come.  Yeah, the Rockies are hear!  Finally no more flatness.


 

 

In my head, on repeat.... a poem...



 

 

 

The Rockies emerged from the clouds

 

As the flatness ended and the upities began

 

we have been waiting for our minds to expand

 

to welcome these colossal structures of grand

 

into this next level we peadle and ride

 

Grace and I and the mountains side by side by side

 

I looked at her said “this is for you, will you be mine?”

 

she simply smiled as the sun shined.

I was checking out your photos, I kinda expected to see you lose a lot of weight but it looks like you haven't. Thanks for calling when you were in Chicago, I will call you soon. We need to talk again. girl stuff, you would understand. She's one of "you". :) Good luck, thanks for being my friend!
