Stars Over Cuchara And The Stonewall Century Ride

The summit of Cuchara Pass is one of those spots that makes you feel like you are on top of the world.  At 10,000 feet in elevation and far from the lights  of Colorado’s more populated front range centers, this is absolutely one of the best spots to view the night sky over the southern part of the state as well as northern New Mexico.

Last week, around 400 hearty souls departed La Veta under the power of their own muscle and spirit to conquer a 102 mile, 7200 vertical foot bike ride over this lofty pass.  This was the ninth running of the grueling Stonewall Century Ride and we were there to capture the smiles of the event volunteers, and the bigger smiles of a few of the participants as they approached the final uphill revolutions of their aching thighs.  Congratulations Stonewall Century Riders!  Check out the event website at http://www.spcycling.org/archive.php
