Those pics are between Sand gulch road and Hwy 285, and those are the mellowest parts of that section really; it's actually one of the harder stretches- I just didn't take pics of the rough stuff because I was riding, and later, dodging lightning.

Sand Gulch east to Methodist mountain road, and east further to Bear Creek is actually the easiest. A bit of exposure between Sand Gulch and Methodist, but not hard riding. Tami has ridden these sections on her ttr. She asks how Amy did on the second day of riding: she says she was leading and didn't see Amy ride much. If she did ok with that and is ok with very narrow sidehill stuff, then she'd probably like some of those sections.

It all looks stoopid and sucky.

Codys got a new 630, so he wanted to take it out on some dirt and break it in. I think it has 150 miles now. He didn't have much time; had to be back for work at 2:00, so we did a quick loop close to home...

UP!






Checking out some mines...





I dared Cody to launch off this. He chickened out.



Climbing up above tree line....



way up there!







It was pretty hazy so it's hard to make out in the pic, but the great Sand Dunes are between our bikes...



Piss with a view...



Cabins...





Interesting old mine we found in a really lush canyon...



Somewhere on this road a tree took me out. Jousted me right off the bike. Ouch. Still up in the air if my knee is ok.





Down into the valley headed back...



The end.

Twenty minutes later I am heading west on HWY 50 towards Monarch pass. The rest of the story is self explanatory.

Thanks for updating. Lord knows I haven't been riding any lately.

Worked north of Salida last week...

Each colored flag marks a prehistoric artifact. We found pottery on the ridge in the center of the photo.


We got really excited when we found something that could be dated (Late Archaic).


When we saw enough of this we began working in pairs. Why did I leave my gun at home?


Our four-legged bear alarms provided constant entertainment, especially the puppy.


A few spectacular mornings at the campsite.


I ended the week with a job offer in Salida. Wish me luck.

Dysco and I took a little 180 mile two track ride on Tuesday.

It started out nice.

Little break in Round Park, after riding through some rain...





We got surrounded by weather; kept trying to stay ahead of it, but eventually we realized it was coming in from all directions. We slabbed for a bit right into the thick of it, and stopped at the bakery in downtown Saguache for some coffee and food, and to dry out...

The rain stopped, and we had dried out a bit, so we headed off to Ute Pass.



Yes, that's snow.





Then we avoided pavement as much as possible, taking a bunch of little two-tracks north between the mountains and hwy 285...





Looking up towards Whale Hill, and the area where I jacked up my knee about a month and a half ago.




The we slabbed it the rest of the way back to Salida. Great day!

THAT was a RELIEF!

Duke, thanks for the lunchtime thrill.

It's nice to see places that are not hot, dusty, brown and trying to burn to the ground.

I need to get out of Tejas soon and get back to Colorado.

All the BEST, Steve T.
