Thanks for sharing. I usually go ride them in the spring before the melt up high. It is deceptive how far out there they are. Last year I managed to run out of gas on my DR650. Prompted me to go invest in a Safari tank.

Great trip report. I just came through there Monday morning (the 25th) on my way back to Bellevue Nebraska from Littleton CO on my 1100GS. I would love to explore more out there.

that influenza outbreak dwarfed anything we've seen in our lifetimes. more died worldwide from influenza than were actually killed in the battles of wwI, which was raging at the same time.

From Wikipedia:

The pandemic lasted from March 1918 to June 1920,[3] spreading even to the Arctic and remote Pacific islands. Between 50 and 100 million died, making it one of the deadliest natural disasters in human history.[4][5][6][7][8] An estimated 50 million people, about 3% of the world's population (1.6 billion at the time), died of the disease. Some 500 million, or 1/3 were infected.[5]
