Well It's happened again! She's riding past the Frosty Cow and tells the driver to "Stop- I have to have my picture taken here!" All because her name is Frost, Jodie Frost. I got the impression she just likes having her picture taken. But she liked the ice cream, too.

Another Frosty Cow season has come to a close. 2015 has been our most successful season yet. We thank all of our wonderful customers for five great years: the Ghost Ranchers, the river rafters, the lake visitors, the riders of The Great Divide, those who fish, those who hunt, those who had no idea where they were, the tourists from all over the world who somehow find their way here (you would be surprised at how many international visitors we have served),and especially our loyal local customers (the riders of Hwy 84) and friends who grow in number every year. Ownership of the Frosty Cow is changing hands, but I am assured by the new owners that our tradition of quality products at a fair price and friendly service will continue. I’m confident the transition will be seamless and the only difference you’ll notice will be younger faces behind the window.

Teresa, from Seattle, said when she saw the sign for The Frosty Cow she just had to stop and have her picture taken. Why? Because her last name is Frost. That's a good enough reason for me.

When I opened the shop today there were four bike riders from The Netherlands and two from England having lunch at my picnic tables and enjoying a break from riding the Continental Divide Trail. The next couple who arrived were not bike riders but just touring the Southwest, were from Switzerland There was quite a European reunion with a lot of inter-trail rivalry (all in fun) and a lot of German being spoken, even though they all spoke excellent English. Great fun!

I have met a number of writers and authors of books here at the Frosty Cow. Today I had the pleasure of spending some quality time chatting with Natalie Goldberg, new age author and inspirational speaker, whose book "Writing Down The Bones" has sold over a million copies and is considered an influential work on the craft of writing. For all you aspiring and "closet" writers (you know who you are) check out Natalie's web site: nataliegoldberg.com

I always enjoy meeting folks from other countries who are riding the Great Divide Trail. These two guys are both originally from Southern Africa, one from Rhodesia, now living in New Zealand and the other from South Africa, now living in Vancouver,BC. They have been friends since childhood and still get together for adventures such as mountain climbing, ocean sailing races, and bicycle racing down the Great Divide. They were caught in a hailstorm north of El Rito and thought they would dry out their gear at the Frosty Cow while sucking down a couple of milkshakes.

Sunday, July 5 was an epic day for the Frosty Cow. Record breaking ice cream sales, far exceeding my previous sales record. By 5 pm there was not so much as a quart of ice cream in the freezer. Here is some of the carnage at closing time.

Greg was born in Portugal, raised in South Africa and now living in Chico, Ca. He works as a metal smith which is a handy skill to have when your rim is bent and a couple of spokes need replacing and you still have hundreds of miles to go. He borrowed an angle grinder from a worker here and a long stainless steel spoon from the Frosty Cow to make his repairs. On the road again!

Bicyclists riding northbound on The Great Divide Trail are beginning to show up in Abiquiu. Noah Baskin stopped at the Frosty Cow to replenish his calories with a chocolate shake. He arrived a little too late on Friday to pick up a package waiting for him at the Post Office, so he would have to stay until the Post Office opened on Monday. Toni and I gave him a good home cooked meal, a real bed and hot shower. Yes, breakfast, too.
