I am a new rider and took my first road trip last weekend. I rode from Denver south on US 285 to Salida. I met one of my bestfriends in the world who lives in Salida. He rides off road everyday so I knew he would know where all of the good trails are. I rode my '08 KLR650. Fun trip and I took a lot of pictures!! Here we go: First stop was in Bailey, didn't take any pictures. I did stop at my usual place on this trip, Kenosha Pass which overlooks South Park, where the last wild American Bison was killed. Here is my nice shinny bike. Notice the Obama sticker! w00t! I love this sign headed into South Park, elk crossing next 40 miles...lol This is where I had lunch. Not too special. After I got to the other side of South Park and down Trout Creek Pass, I stopped and took these pictures of the Collegiate Peaks. This is Mount Princeton, one of my favorite mountains in the world. The hot springs at the base of this mountain will be for some other ride. Here is Mount Yale then Mount Harvard. Shavano and Antero in this pic. I finally made it to Salida and stopped in to see my wife's little sister Kristi. She is such a sweetie!! With time to kill before my homeboy got off of work, I headed up Tenderfoot Mountain aka "S" Mountain. I took these pics from the top of "S" Mountain. A nice pic of Princeton. A good one of Shavano. Beautiful little Salida, the place I grew up. Mount Ouray is peaking out on the right hand side. Here is a shot of Chipeta, Cochetopa and Taylor Mountains Here is a shot of the south east looking towards the Sangre de Cristos.
