Creel to Durango

It took us 2 days from Creel to reach the fabulous Durango. Once there, we decided to stop and take in the sights, the street life, and the food for two nights.

We found a cheap room in and old castle type building opposite the cathedral. For the first time on this trip we were offered to park our bikes in the hallway, something we had heard of, but never done. A really fun adventure driving them in!

That night walking past another hotel we looked into the lobby to spot another couple of GS bikes parked amongst the grandeur of the big hotel. We left a note on the bikes, hoping to catch up with the owners. Which we did! We got an email as we were walking back past the hotel after a fabulous meal out, we walked in to meet two Kiwi’s; Dianna, and Ken. For a while we thought Diana was riding the other R1200GSA , an impressive feat for her size, but later we discovered her husband Dick was the driver and had retired for the evening. A lovely catch up about the road and thoughts of travel so far.

A bicycle race was starting the next morning at 6 am headed by Lance Armstrong. We decided to crawl out of bed to watch the start. The cyclist were racing the road we planned to ride so it was timely that we were not on the road that day.

Alaska to Patagonia .....
