After about 40 miles, I stopped for a dip in the Hobo Hot Springs (French Fry has this one) and the winds seemed to moderate. Weather was ideal again (rain is forecast for Monday PM and Tuesday) while the scenery proved more expansive than engaging with widely dispersed ranches and pasture area and limited civilization which makes for long slogs to find warm bedding options.
110 miles today with 4,600 feet of climbing as I crossed into Colorado and am overnighting in the moose mecca of Walden. My hunter orange dry-fit T-shirt fits in well here. (f.y.i.-running totals are now on the main page.)
