DAY 5: Lake City to Buena Vista (COBDR)

Thank you Backcountry Discovery Routes for your awesome services!
Thank you Butler Maps for your awesome maps!

Well, after having a very solid and "smooth" ride yesterday, this day was shaping up to be a wet one!
We woke up to the distinct sound of loud and frequent pitter patter, the liquid kind, not the 2-legged kind!

At 8:30am we were all fueled up and braced ourselves for an all day shower.

Regardless of the rain, it was still a beautiful day to ride! Afterall, things could have been worse, much worse.
I couldn't take that many pics at this stage due to the wet conditions. I need to go buy a GoPro soon!

This scenery and this weather, a photog's dream! Wishing I had room for my DSLR.

Customary cow pic!

"Burning Man" effect, but in Colorado, not New Mexico!

Fortunately, the weather was starting to cooperate again!

But we needed to watch our time and stay ahead of a storm that was just behind us.

We've been rolling on along the COBDR today rather uneventfully.
So, we decided to do a short and quick detour. The funny thing is, it was actually the real road we were going to use as a detour vs. the bypass on the route.
I think it was Home Gulch Rd and Razor Dome Rd? Mike, is this correct?

There wasn't too much mud, but it was enough to make things slip-n-slide fun!

One very happy man that got to play in a little mud.

As I was saying earlier, our day, albeit wet, was pretty much rather uneventful...

And then we ran into this guy... Jason from RawHyde...

And his group of 5 BMW GS riders...

Note to self: Be careful what you wish for because things are about to get pretty damn interesting.
