Leadville: The Lightning Strikes

Pretty sweet day today. Slept in. We’re at the house without chef Dan, or we were, so we were food-less. Robbie poached the cooking talent and convinced chef Dan to shack up in our mountain retreat and bring the kitchen with him. Awesome. We’ll eat like kings. Got in a great ride on some singletrack right out the front door. Dave and I hit the trails but the thunder in the distance was cause for concern. Quickly, back to the house! The bolts started streaking across the sky right when we were under the power lines but the skies waited to open up until we were about 10 feet from the garage door. Whew. Hail, downpour, lightning. Definitely not in SoCal anymore.
