I don't think it comes across as an expansive wasteland in the pictures. Desolate? Yes. Devoid of much life? Yes. But intoxicatingly beautiful, empty, wild and free.

The pictures are great and definitely looks like a must visit kind of place.
I prefer a little more iron in the rocks to give them a reddish tint.
Still spectacular!
Really amazed at how clean the roads are!
Keep up the great RR!

So after all these miles I'm fairly comfortable out in the dirt--or in this case, gravel/rocks. Since I don't have much in the way of video and this would be one of my last opportunities to capture the moment, I busted out my iPhone and started recording. Only my fingers were too cold to register on the 'smart' phone. Instead of 5% of my attention and 1 hand being devoted to filming, a good 80-90% of my attention (momentarily) focused on whether or not the god damned phone was recording or not (Keith Code is cringing right now). I finally got the video going right before my front wheel sailed into something bad....

Vid:


Quickly threw the phone, grabbed the left clip on and saved it right before I lost the front/hit the side of the mountain.

Brilliant. I know you had fun riding the supermodel through that landscape, that just had to be incredible

Those domes are charcoal kilns. And they make very good igloos when you show up and it's 2 degrees and snowing. :)

Temps at ~sea level were in the 60s, maybe even 70s, during the day. At higher elevations (by the charcoal kilns) it was probably in the 50s give or take 5 degrees (ok, take). Every 1000 feet you lose a significant amount of heat and the kilns were at 6800 feet.

During the night it's probably 40-50 on the floor.

Canon against the world

My experience testing out various P&S cameras is that Canon's cameras are more adjustable and can take truly outstanding photos if you take the time to tweak the settings, but most other brands are closer to outstanding right out of the box. It's a very different story for dSLRs though.

Thank you, AntiHero!

It's the middle of winter, I've been home sick for three weeks, but you took me to summer, and the riding I won't be doing until at least May!
