Here are a few images I took Sat. afternoon on the way to see Mike Dillon in Telluride. This is Ophir pass. I took a paved road back to Ouray.
We went through there this summer on a mini-road trip over to Mesa Verde then back to Durango and up to Ouray, where we ended up staying put for a couple days. The views were fantastic, and we saw plenty of riders going through.

We had one hair raising moment on the way up to Ouray where we had to quickly pull over to let a BMW GS get past us with a semi chasing him down the mountainside. My husband said the way it looked in the rearview, he couldn't believe the truck hadn't already hit the guy. We got back on the road and followed them through a few curves and then they were gone - truck still right on the GS's tail.

I can see that being a gorgeous ride, but I have to say the # of trucks going through there doesn't make my heart flutter in a happy way.

Stop by and say hello next time you're in town!
Cool, I will do that! I don't make it down too often though. Maybe go for a ride?

Going to Salida next weekend

My wife and I and another couple are all riding out to Estes next week and then down to Salida on Sunday to stay for a couple days. Any suggestions on places to stay, eat and just sit around would be much appreciated. Never been to Salida, but it looks like a cool place in the middle of some pretty country.

Thanks,

Paul

There are a handful of hot springs in the area. Visit them all!!
Also, eat at the Laughing Ladies Cafe. That's the only advice I have for you for food, once you eat there, that's the only place you will want to eat!
Get some dirt riding in. Ride over Marshall pass. Would be a fun ride. have fun and be safe!
