Day 7 started in Rawlins WY and ended in Dillon Colorado. RCrabb was leaking a lot of coolant from his F650 and decided to depart directly for the BMW shop in Denver. Down to just 2 riders.
JimC headed south out of Rawlins on WY rd 71 that soon turned to dirt. The first 50 miles or so was more high desert, crossing the continental divide again, more antelope, before we entered the Medicine Bow National Forest and Aspen Alley
More high plains, with only JimC left for photos-------
Soon crossing into Colorado and the Routt National Forest
The road got a little more challeging here where we crossed another mountain pass between Slater and Steamboat Lake
We passed through Steamboat Springs and finally found a Starbucks to load up on caffeine. The young lady said there are only 3 starbucks in the whole state of Montana and I suspect no more in Wyoming. Just south of Steamboat we had to route around a pedestrian only dam crossing. Crossed a fairly deep stream crossing and on towards the Colorado River.
More sage and trees --
We crossed Lynx pass and made a spetacular decent towards the Colorado River
Darn another pass before Dillon -- Ute pass
And we arrived in Dillon safe and sound just before the usual PM rain storm
