I've been making Colorado my annual sabbitical since 1992 only missing one year since. Stayed in Silverton for the first time last year and going back again this year. Will be staying at the Red Mtn camground july 3rd-10th, then going to Taylor Park area july 10th -16th. I ride a plated KTM exc 450 and it works great up there also have atv's as well -1 day on bikes, next day on kwadz. Can't wait! Everything Geek says about alt alt sickness and dryness is TRUE. You can't drink enough water up there. I have also experienced all 4 seasons in a days ride up there. Take it easy for the first few days if your a flatlander like me and you'll be okay! If anyone is in the area during these dates, come look us up! We'll be in the largest toyhauler in the campground!
Great thread Geek! Keep it up.
