More snow forecast for the next couple of days so we headed out during the lunch hour to run some errands.
As I reached the junction of Orchard and Parker Road, I stopped for a few minutes to get these shots of Mount Evans from the southern end of Cherry Creek Park.
After dropping off the paperwork for the tax accountant, we rode over to the parking across the street from the entrance to Westlands Park in the Denver Tech Center:
Next, it was a ride over to PerformanceCycles where the replacement summer boots I had ordered after the gas-soaking incident were ready for me to pickup. They were reported by reviewers to run small so I wanted to make sure my feet fit even though I'd ordered one size up from normal.

They're classified as ATV Boots, short version of the full-up MX boots used by dirt bike riders.
The boots fit fine, I even wore them out of the store and homewards, no issues to report in terms of shifting gears. I did feel some pressure from the inboard support cushion that had been reported by reviewers but it should go away after a few more hours of wearing the boots.
No zippers to have fail later on, just buckles and one small patch of Velcro at the top of the boots.
It was 44°F (6°C) on the way home, not exactly hot but not warm either and I was just starting to feel vague tendrils of cold inside the new boots as I approached home. This is good, I don't want them to be cold-weather boots!
