Time to get after it!
People that know me know that I like to start my tours by riding out my driveway and just go. But, this year a bit different. It would have been my third straight tour starting with a first day over Trail Ridge Road and while I love TR, I just wanted to be able to add a day on the other side of this trip and see some country that I have not ridden.
So, I recruited Evelyn to get up early and give me a shuttle over to Hot Sulpher Springs.
Right after Byers canyon I zipped onto County Road 3 and headed for the pass. The first 3 miles were paved and then turned to dirt.
A barn that has felt the weight of snow and age!
Another barn, maybe this will be a tour of barns on this trip!
Hey Richard! This Ranch is for sale. 2,200 acres! You could spend the rest of your days creating a mountain bike trail system in paradise for all the rest of US!!! Probably only in the multiple 7 figures. Dig up a few of those coffee cans you have buried in the back yard!!
First day-First Pass!!
They did not have an elevation sign at the top, I was still below timberline so I am guessing around 9500 ft
First view of peaks that will be challenged tomorrow
Dad on the pole watching over things
A good first day!
Hey if you guys don't see a post from me everyday......don't worry. It just means no internet connection or I'm just too tired to post!
Thanks for following along!!
