Bike riding today… Lizzy and Ted outfitted us with bikes and we rode the Rio Grande Trail, a rails-to-trail conversion that runs the length of the valley. Starting in Carbondale we rode south to Basalt, then back up to Willits for a burger at Sure Thing.
Basalt is 12 miles away, and holds their Farmers Market on Sunday, so we looked over the local wines, Palisade peaches, breads (and cookies which became a pre-lunch snack.)
Well, Sure Thing was a sure thing – no wonder everyone wanted to stop. The burgers are great, the fries are fresh and smoking hot and bonus points for a free soft-serve cone afterwards – as if you needed one after all that!
Yours truly adding to the blog (in a rather familiar Carbondale spot – PD)
Carbondale has this fantastic setting with Mt. Sopris defining everyone’s back yard.
Meals: Turkey burger at Sure Thing and popcorn and root beer floats with Lizzy and Ted.
Wildlife: Greg and Lizzy sight a fox along the trail.
