Day Three (7/5)

Sunday we opted to rent bikes and ride the 11 mile paved path around Leadville called the Mineral Belt. It takes you by signs where you can learn all about the mining heritage of this town. We even stopped along the way to take a tour of the Matchless mine where one of the Silver Kings made all his money in the early 1900's Here is Go Postal and Dairy Queen standing outside. Little did we know rain was coming...and it wasn't the nice summer showers we get here....IT WAS COLD. I didn't have gloves or pants on and needless to say got really chilled. I have never seen my legs turn purple before. But we had a nice hut where we could wait it out. The afternoon brightened right back up and we ate Mexican for dinner.

No shots of purple legs? That sounds miserable, I'm sure the hot and spicy salsa warmed you right up!
