  1. October could be too cold but it could be damned near perfect, too. Just have to watch the weather and make a last minute decision. Durango is a nice little town - lots of restaurants in their vibrant downtown area. It's not all bombed out and deserted like many town of the same size.
  2. After the Black Canyon area, the topography flattens out and the ride gets a bit sucky. We headed over the Grand Mesa and onto I-70 to blast the last 250 miles to home. 3 days, two nights and 1,300 miles. A nice ride.
  3. Last day of the ride and we need to beat feet back towards home. Took a detour to ride along the Black Canyon from Sapinero to Delta...
  4. Rode up to Ouray and back on Route 550 - just because it's a fun road- and then back to the Marriott for more beers...
  5. Not a lot happening in Silverton when we got back. Typical old mining town. Biggest business in town is the side by side rental place. Got some grub though...
  6. Started to get late again, so we turned around and headed back...
  7. Scenery was hard to beat though...
  8. Had to ride through this past winter's avalanche area to continue onward. Smelled like fresh cut pine as we rode through. Snow was brown from all the dust that has blown onto it...
  9. Didn't have to go far to find some mines...
  10. Ate crappy pizza and got drunk (another typical night for me) and then crashed out at the Marriott for the night. Slept good after a 500 mile day of riding. Next day and we're up and head towards Silverton for some more gold mine exploring....
  11. After Creede, it was getting late and a bit dark, so we hauled ass down 149 to 160 West into Durango for the night..
  12. We have miles and miles of roads like this to ride on in Colorado. I never get tired of them...
  13. The ore house here is freakin' huge! You can just imagine what a pain in the ass it was to haul all of that timber up there and then build this thing. Gold ore was loaded out of the House and into trains or horse drawn carts via the huge chutes at the bottom of the house....
  14. The Bachelor Gulch Mine was a big operation back in it's day...
  15. Creede is an old gold mining town that got it's start in the 1860's. There are lots of abandoned gold mines nearby and we thought it'd be rude not to check some out...
