Day 12 - Boulder Mountain, Red Canyons

Good Morning America!  I must say, a little granola in your belly after a good night of rest does wonders for your energy levels.

I started my day off with a 3000 foot climb, so I certainly would need all the hutzh-pah I could muster.  Boulder Mountain (I think it was called) was actually one of the more enjoyable climbs that I've had so far.  The 3000 feet rose before me along a winding 24 km road that had a nice little gradient to it.   

 

Great little climb deserves a vanity shot.

After that, it was mostly downhill, through 2 national parks.  Becoming very well used to the variety of America's RVs was informative, but I was more interested in the great red landscape that I was winding through.
