Montrose to Gunnison
KOA Camp in Gunnison
Making Lunch at Gunnison
Fellow Travelers Rusty & Ray, their wives and two friends
A stiff tail wind. The guys just flew from Montrose and arrived in Gunnison about 2:30. We intended to camp here but they wanted to keep going because the going was so easy. So they headed out and told me to pick them up after another 25 miles. They wanted to get as many miles toward Monarch Pass as possible, because it is going to be the highest (11,312 feet) of our adventure. The camp site was a KOA and was relatively inexpensive. Right next to the camp there was a white water kayaking competition going on. The rivers along our route are full and really rushing. Phil did pick them up and brought them back to Gunnison where we met Rusty, Ray, and their wives. We hit the sack by 8:30 in anticipation of the long climb tomorrow.
