Click to Enlarge We decided to go and ride the Sourdough trail, but as we drove up into the mountains it started to rain, we carried on driving to the trail head car park. It was cold wet and windy at the trail head so we decided to go back down the mountains to find better weather. We drove back down along the I72 to White Ranch just North of Golden, where it was sunny and warm. Click to Enlarge
