4 days, 1100 miles- Colorado June Tour

More pictures here than anything else. My neighbor and I left Boulder last Thursday for a 4 day ride that would take us into parts of Colorado that we wanted to revisit and other places we had never been to. We did just over 1100 miles in 4 days. There was probably less than 300 miles of pavement with the majority of it getting out of and back into the Front Range.

Here is the map of the route.


The route took us over Trail Ridge Road in RMNP, then back roads to the northwest corner of Colorado.



North of Meeker, we headed to Juniper Hot Springs with plans to camp there for night. Upon arrival, it did not really meet the expectations.

If the luke warm water, dilapidated building, and storming skies were not enough of a deterrent... the scene was completed when a large sweaty gentleman in full camo with a neck tattoo of Elk and the kill date pulls up in his rusted out '89 Jeep Cherokee and tells us "...the waters a lot warmer if you go inside the building."
