Anyway.
Good to see the Mobius is still "On".

Be well Dr. and LDF.

Q~
Yeah, "progress" is one way of putting it. Another would be "slow " I believe we overlapped the CDT on that little section, 'cause Scott seemed to remember the water hazard and said it was too deep to mess with. In other news, Bellevue opened yesterday, so I'm back home at the mother ship. Spent the last couple days getting caught up with administrative office crap. And now we have a blizzard bearing down on us. What is it with the weather these days. Damn geopolitical warming. Did you get a sled for X-mas, Q?

I had dust on the sensor of my Panasonic ZS-3. I found that it was easy to take the cover off and clean the sensor. You have to work slow and methodical.

You mean like this?



This was back in '07 on our Nova Scotia trip. Never did get it back together working. The rye didn't help much, but tasted good.

Scenes from camp

Chores, fixing pant cuff. The snap snapped off again, so I replaced it with a toggle.



Kick back and relax,



What a great site, eh?



The Colorado River, and the Denver & Rio Grande Western Railroad tracks. There were some folks rafting on the river, they looked like ants.



Bones scattered everywhere.

Now down to three riders total? Bikes coming and going...tough to keep track.

Good the hospital is back in service. All elevators elevating?

Indeed. Both up AND down.

Keep it RAW

Couldn't agree more about RAW files. Why hamstring one's post production capabilities. Your camera work David is what initially drew me into this RR. It has only gotten better along the way.
As to the hospital being open....coming back after that kind of shut down can't be easy. Occasionally I'll have a nightmare about having to report back to the hospital from retirement.
Lyn and I are in a cold Santa Fe tonight so seeing your late summer Colorado pix has been a treat. We'll toast M10 tonight and dream of M11.

M10, Day 13: Thrusday, Sept. 20, 2012

We had a nice campfire the night before, and good thing, 'cause it got a bit chilly overnight. We bundled up, and emerged from our tents to make coffee.



And enjoyed a beautiful and sublime sunrise.



We'd been hearing trains go by every once in a while all night,



Coal.

Today's route

would start by taking us over the Colorado River at the Radium bridge.



We'd continue heading South, until we were due West of Denver before meandering around the mountains before calling M10 a wrap. I'd routed sections in the White River N.F, and the Arapaho N.F. But truth be told, there were plenty of alternates, and we were now close enough to Denver that if we had a breakdown we could get there in under a day, so this was low-pressure play-time.



No rush, easy pace, take our time and enjoy the ride.



Video update: (the sound's actually not bad on this one )





Looking like another perfect riding day.

A perfectly good road

and a little MT-43 rear trials tire review:





Super-awesome fall colors,



As we kept climbing.

We were

Up to 10k ft again on M10.





We were above the aspens now, and into the conifers.



up on the ridge, there were lots of puddles, and we got to see how the MT-43's did with a little bit of wet.



This was a fun little section.
