Sandwash Basin in Northwest Colorado is 157,000 acres OPEN to OHV



That's 245 square miles of nothing but fun!
I highly recommend it if you have the chance.
This area is so sparsely populated you can ride single track and dual track for days and not see another human.

In fact you are more likely to run into packs of wild horses than other people (and we did ).





Everything you see in this photo is part of Sandwash Basin (and 100x more):

Listen to the silence.
Take the picture.

Nope - guess again

The photo was taken by a Sony NEX7 with a Rokinon 8mm aspherical fisheye lens...

Everything behind me is Sandwash Basin and fully ORV friendly. Bring lots of fuel as the nearest gas station is hours away.

Yeah.. I'm the guy out in the middle of the desert that looks like an idiot holding a stick over his head

LOL - no doubt!

The real reason I put one picture per post is because I find it hugely annoying when someone quotes a single post of 26 photos and includes all of the photos in the quote.. and then adds a comment

It could wear your mouse wheel out
