I managed to leave early and make use of the time zone change giving me an extra hour to arrive in Fort Collins just after 3pm.
After getting cleaned up and getting my base layer washed out, I called home and got caught up, checked the weather along my route and then headed out for dinner.
The local Mexican restaurant was recommended and it was delicious, especially the tortilla soup.
I would recommend Hacienda Real if your in Fort Collins’ north end.
Tomorrow I head to Ogden, Utah. It’s going to be a colder morning with temperatures in the 30s, so I’ll be bundled up.
