Anyway, congrats on a great ride!
Thanks amigo - dunno if you remember, but we met on the ride in 2010. We passed going opposite ways in the mud somewhere between Como and Hartsel, CO. If I remember correctly your GPS was possessed.

It's quite a pretty section, and both of the campgrounds along the road are nice and not very busy. Lowlands in particular is noted for lots of wildlife in the area (non-bear type). Here's a screenshot of that section in case it helps.



cheers

I already created it and got it 99% right but your screenshot helped me--I guessed that you took the Bluebird Trail out of Butte, but going up Orofino Gulch makes better sense. Here it is.

Cannonshot - WOW your ride reports are indeed amazing!

I've been planning a trip to Wyoming this summer, been trying to sort out possible routes etc. (you commented on a thread I started on that topic a while ago)

Reading this ride report has made up my mind. My wife and I will ride your track from up near the Tetons, south to Rawlins, perhaps down to near the Colorado boarder, then over to Laramie to see my son for a few days. Not much of the dirt stuff compared to the whole GDR, but its what our schedule will allow. Being able to relate your pictures to the map makes all the difference!

Thanks!
