Day 2

Day 2:

We woke up to cows. Lots and lots of cows. The herd was moving along the main road, maybe for some higher elevation morning feeding?

We packed up camp and got on the road to Lake City for refueling.

Outside of Lake City we head toward Cinnamon Pass. From past ride reports, we were both pretty excited for this section. We weren't disappointed. Amazing trails, spectacular views, maybe the most photogenic day of the trip.

I'm in the group somewhere. This was a big group of Kiwis on KTMs that were doing the TAT backwards from Oregon to Colorado. We talked to them for awhile and crossed their path a few more times before the day was through.

Off the back of Cinnamon, you can see Animas Forks below and the road we'll be taking up to California Pass.

Animas Forks is an old mining camp with the abandoned buildings mostly intact. The mayor's house must have been a castle in the 1800s.
