Biking to Cottonwood Lake - Buena Vista, Colorado

Steep climbing on a bike is good for the soul ...
April 26, 2014 - This morning I did a short bike ride, starting at the turnoff for Cottonwood Lake (third photo below) and heading up Chaffee County Road 344. It was only three miles to get to the lake, but it was all uphill and quite a workout. Nothing beats the intense climbs in Colorado's mountains. Be sure to watch the videos below. After yesterday's bike ride, I've gotten in a habit of making "talking while I'm cycling" videos. :)

The creek was pretty.
