Good way to start the day, really. As soon as we could motivate, we sauntered out of our hotel across the street to what turned out to be a really unexpected highlight of the trip - Southwest Grille. SW Grille is a completely awesome greasy spoon diner just west of downtown Pueblo on Hwy 50. It's on the way to the Res and is highly recommended. My breakfast burrito with green chile definitely did not dissapoint. After food and probably way too much coffee, the 4 of us were feeling good enough for a ride. Time to roll!
Pueblo seemed to be a pretty cool town, albeit the fact that it kinda reminded me of Phoenix. Desert, apparently no zoning, etc. Geographically speaking, though, the place was cool. Pueblo Reservoir was cool, too. They basically dammed up the Arkansas River and flooded some canyonlands. The resulting topography of it all was pretty cool. Our sunny day never did actualize, but it was beautiful nonetheless.
