Day 16 - Cooling in Colorado

183 miles (150 offroad). 9.5 hours. Camped at Marveeso Campground, CO (**).

In Moab, we picked up a new battery for Jon's KLR - the folks at Moab Motorsports were very helpful, staying open beyond hours to get us the part. Then we took the trail out of Moab into Colorado. The change from Moab's red to Colorado's green was hard to believe. As was the lightening. Sam demonstrated the Kiwi approach to dodging thunderstorms, which mostly consisted of saying the word "awsomeness" repeatedly.
