I made it to Ouray, but was worried about the storm they keep talking about locally, so I had a celebratory cough drop, almost dropped my bike in the parking lot (after making through Engineers Pass without dropping it).
Did stop for a quick picture of Box Canyon falls on the way out of town, but fading daylight and cold persuaded me to get south and lose some altitude.
Manly? Does trembling like a little girl while repeating "don't drop it" in your helmet for two hours sound manly? I had the shakes from adrenalin and cold by the time I got to pavement.
