It started raining on us just a few miles out, but it didn't last. We rode on, and at one point we were riding the line with partly clear skies on our left and dark gloomy thunder clouds on our right. But then the road turned to the right and we were riding right into it.
We rode faster today than we have any of the other days, just trying to get to the next town before a storm hit us. That's the way the day went racing from town to town, hoping to make it a little further before we got hit with a storm. Unbelievably we made it all the way to Woodland Park, and with only a few drops of rain. The day was actually a great ride, in its own way!
We arrived at Woodland Park around 4:00 I think. Our friends met us at the bottom of their hill on their bike, and we followed them to their house. We were shocked at their home... its so beautiful! And they have wildlife that visits their property regularly. We met one of the deer (dont remember her name), but we havent seen the foxes, and we should see the bear on garbage day.

We have all sorts of plans for things to say and do while we are here... so we may be here a few days. They have made us feel SO welcome! They are awesome friends.
