It was sunny and cool at the top were we met up with Ray and Brenda. Brenda took this picture of us in front of the marker. To us this was an important moment. Crossing the Divide felt like the point of no return, there's nothing for it now but to keep on to the East Coast. After all, it's all down hill from here, right? Yeah, right. Well as we descended the views to the East were beautiful.
We descended the eighteen miles to Poncha Springs rapidily. At Poncha Springs we found a little resturant named Thai Mini Cafe where we had a great lunch. We were certainly surprised to find great Thai food in a tiny burg like Poncha Springs! From Poncha Springs we turned north on Hwy. 285 which will take us all the way to Denver. Tonight we are staying in a KOA just outside Buena Vista. We will be at Belinda's Mom's house by Saturday.
