Day #52 – Pueblo, CO to Westcliffe, CO – 56 miles / 90 km

Today the brothers crossed the first mountain of the Rockies, one which has many names: Wet Mountains, Cuerno Verde, Greenhorn Mountains, and Sierra Mojadas. They gained a total elevation of 4600 ft (1402 m) and lost 1300 ft (396 m) during the day.

They already feel that they need to breathe deeper.

The town where they spend the night, celebrates it’s 125th birthday on this day.
