San Juan Mini Adventure Ride

Took a few days last fall to ride the San Juan's in Colorado.
Trailered the bikes to Ouray, then rode from Ouray to Lake City via Engineer. Then rode from Lake City to Silverton via Engineer/Cinnamon/Animas Forks, and then tried to get lost on some of the roads/trails in the area... Rode Silverton to Telluride via Black Bear, and then back to Ouray via Imogene. We stayed at hotels so only had minimal equipment to carry on the bikes. I was on my 2009 DRZ400S, and my buddy was on a brand new 2014 Husqvarna TR650 Terra that had about 100 miles on it at the start. Awesome scenic riding. Here is a a short video I made.

Nice vid. Thanks for sharing.

A buddy and myself rode some in the La Platas around Mancos Co last June. Beautiful country.

Got me seriously considering moving out there. My wife says I need to get a job out there first. I think she's being way too practical.
