Biking at a Colorado Mountain Reservoir

Mary and I rode our electric bikes along the eastern edge of Horsetooth Reservoir and the Overland Trail in Fort Collins, Colorado last weekend. We couldn’t have pedaled the steep hills without electricity.

Every reservoir in Colorado is overflowing and cottonwood trees 50 feet tall are drowning under 20 feet of water but the excess can’t be stored in lakes Mead and Powell or sold to save dying crops in California, due to political failures. There will be a so-called “drought” in 5 years where the government will tell us to let our lawns die.
