I'm actually surprised they didn't have the gate locked. Usually they lock the front gate so the trails don't get tore up when it's wet out.

Sure is a nice place compared to when we went there every single weekend about 10 years ago.

Had to primitive camp. No showers.

This was of course before greedy Vilsac took all the funds out of the coffers. Now they actually spend every single dime before it gets taken again.

We talked to a lady from the DNR right when we got there. She came over to ensure our stickers were up to date, but I was half expecting her to tell us that the park was closed.

That is the last time I ride when it's that muddy, though. The hard packed stuff was rideable, but there was so much of it that was just soupy mud. We saw a few guys on quads. They seemed to be getting around fine, but were head to toe in mud.

I know! The GoPro has a way of making the incredibly terrifying look tame. Either that, or I'm a giant vagina. Could be either, really.

Colorado Trip

Hey everybody, I've got the difficult job of flying out to Montrose Colorado and picking up an older GoldWing that my Dad bought online.
I know.... it's a tough job, but somebody has to do it.
I'll be taking lots of pictures and will post them on here.
Wish me luck! Should be an amazing trip.

Here is the route you need to take back:

South on US550 through Ridgway, Ouray, Silverton and Durango.
East on US160 out of Durango through Pagosa Springs, South Fork, Del Norte, Monte Vista.
North on US285 out of Monte Vista all the way back to the Denver area. From there, you are pretty much stuck with long flat straight stretches of highway but I would recommend cutting off of I76 at Ft. Morgan and picking up US34 across eastern Colorado and the southern tier of Nebraska. Just more stuff to see than slabbing it.
