    Excellent Bike Guides lead us through Palisade and its wineries for tastes along the way--but not too many. We were all thirsting for more and ready for our own Welcome/Tasting Party back at the Clarion Inn, where we enjoyed the rest of the evening outside in the courtyard under the full moon. Saturday offered another beautiful, sunny day--perfect for our visit to the Colorado Mountain Winefest. The Picnic Bag filled with a French Baguette, Salami, Asiago Cheese, Pears, a cheese knife, and bottle open were a nice touch and helped round out the day while relaxing on the lawn listening to the live bands and dancing.

    I wish I had been paying attention to this. I've been wanting to go up there and try the wineries out. Looks like a really good time.

    Can we rent bikes there?

      Good morning Marilyn. You can rent bikes and helmets for the rides scheduled for Friday at noon, but highly recommend calling to reserve one today. Are you considering joining us on the trip? We still have space for one more person, if you'd like to come along. BUT, you'll need to pay in full via PayPal on UTC's website before 5pm today. I'm purchasing the winefest tickets, shuttle vouchers, and appetizers for our Welcome Party today. The UTC website address is: www.upthecreek.org.
