We rolled off of Baxter Pass and down towards Fruita searching for some food and fuel.
Downtown Fruita.

We had done about 250+ miles since that morning and was feeling it. We picked up a huge pie at the Hot Tomato Cafe and learned that they would be closing their doors on June 20th because they could not renew their lease. Bummer.... the place had real good pizza and great vibe to it.

With a stomach full of pizza and tall boy in the pocket for camp, we rolled up the Colorado National Monument to camp for the night. The weather was blowing out for the night and we were treated to a great sunset overlooking the valley and Book Cliffs beyond.

The next morning we woke up and rolled through the Monument enjoying the views and road before anyone else got up.

We gassed up on the outskirts of GJ before hitting the twistys of 141 up to Gateway. From there we plotted a route down the Divide Road of the Uncompahgre Platue with plans for a late lunch in Ridgeway... 100+ miles away.
