Now where was I - leaving Duke and Tami's house in Salida, CO. At dinner last night in town, one of Duke's friends said the two passes I wanted to go through were still snowed in!!! Being from Texas that was hard to believe at the end of July but The general insisted that that was normal and wouldn't even think of going up to check it out. I think he use to be a safety officer somewhere.
Anyway, on to Lake city CO. we go.














Electic co. is working down the street so I'm going to post this before I lose it AGAIN!
Later, Chuck

Arrived in lake View


Lee and I found a place to eat T-bone steaks, drink a few beers and listen to a girl band - Yes life was good - But where was Burt?




The next morning Lee and I topped off with some oil & gas - Burt just got gas.




Hit the rode again in anticipation of the fresh day ahead








More later, Chuck

Well Chuck it seems that you weathered the storm pretty, other than that new bass pond in the front yard. Loving the RR, keep it up

I know about that. It was many years and miles before I realized there was actual scenery in Arkansas.

Great RR guys. Keep up the good work.

We discussed the passes we would cross leaving Salida at dinner with Hayduke, Bonnie & Inmate friend of Hayduke's. It was reported that Hancock & Tomichi were barely open and Tincup would not open all summer. After a meeting of the "minds", we decided to ride Cottonwood, Cinnamon and Ophir.
We departed Salida after breakfast at the infamous Pancake House and climbed Cottonwood.
Thanks to a Saturday and everyone for miles decided to play on Cottonwood. We saw RV's, ATV's, cars, pickups-- even a Goldwing! It was a trafficjam!!
Trying not to get run over-- we made it to Gunnison- using the slab for the last 18 miles as Burt's gas tank was low.
Dodged thunder bumpers all afternoon-- only got a few sprinkles. Made it to Lake City-- found the last tent space in a RV park next to the river-- then off to the "Backyard" for , steaks and music from two two talented young girls from Texas.
Total miles: 190

After gas, air and oil-- plus breakfast-- we were off to Cinammon Pass. This was a pretty hard rocky climb-- many ATV's had clogged the road and did their normal gouging of the tracks. Had acouple of blind uphill hairpin turns to keep your attention gland pumping!
The downhill side had some tough spots also. Plenty of loose rocks!!
Hit Silverton before 10AM, Chuck was looking for a Silverton Brewry hat to replace his lost one. Had to mull around and drink a few cups of coffee waiting for things to get moving there. Plenty of tourists, motorcycles and such in Silverton. it has to make money for the 100 days or so of the season. It's one deserted place when the snow arrives. Silverton is snowed in for many days in the winter!
We then headed for Ophir Pass-- a tough one for me--due to extreme loose rocks on the way down I dumped at slow speed!! Another gravity storm!!
Did bang the bash plate once or twice on big rocks!
Later on we turned off after Dunston onto a real rocky, pot hole water filled road for 25 miles. Pretty steep down grade with hundreds of potholes all filled with brown water to test your luck on how deep they were. Again hit a big one-- size of a cinder block- hit my tool tube and dumped me again! It did reduce the size of the tool tube to a better size!
