It seems like so long ago, but I used to live at a place called the Broken Arrow Ranch on Peak to peak Hwy somewhere between Ward and Nederland. I do remember taking a few trips up to Estes and RMNP. I was in my late teens and I'm almost fifty now so the memories are vague. Does anybody from that area know if the Broken Arrow Ranch still exists?

Beautiful. Thanks for sharing.

I grew up in Colorado in the 60's and 70's. I lived in C Spgs, Woodland Park and Canon City. It's a beautiful place to ride street and dirt bikes.

If you've never visited, make a plan and go. You'll never forget it.

Thanks guys, I appreciate it! It is hard NOT to take a good picture in that area.

While looking over my camera, I found out that I had my sharpness set to soft. I was wondering why the pictures looked a little soft .

So, I reprocessed the pictures and sharpened them slightly. They look much nicer now.

I went ahead and edited my first post and posted the new, sharper pictures. So, if you want to see better pics, they are up there now.

Wow - beautiful shots! We most recently rode through RMNP in June of this year. I always enjoy the scenery.

RMNP is one of the favorite places I have ever been. I grew up in Kansas City and our family used to go out and stay at the "Y Camp" for 2 or 3 weeks every year. I have enjoyed taking my family there as I became a father. - even though it is quite a bit more of an ordeal getting there from Atlanta (where I know live). You just can't beat the place.

I'll bet riding on Trail Ridge Road is a bit nippy this time of year - if it is even open.

Trivia: did you know there was a golf course in Moriane Park back in the day?

Fishing tip: Hairs ear nymphs KILL the trout in early June at the tail out of Thunder Lake. Best fishing I have ever had.

Beautiful!

Absolutely great pics!
I am getting very tempted to post my own ride report on the roads down here I have to ride (long and straight and flat). Just so you guys who live in those really cool places appreciate what you have (I'm sure you do anyway).
But, just in case....

Hey, Florida has it's own beauty. I really liked crossing the Okeechobee swamp thinking about how hard it must been before the roads were constructed. Don't forget the miles of beaches
