    We finally got some rain down here. This was July 10 on Bolam Pass with Dean and Milan. I opted for the small bike as the GS is undergoing some suspension upgrades.

    and the Hermosa Creek crossing. Obligatory on any of the three roads from Hwy145.

    Not sure why we didn't get any pictures down in Lime Creek. Beautiful road that skips around Coalbank Pass and begins and ends on 550.
    Lunch in Silverton-nothing special.
    Then on to Ophir Pass.

    It was nice up top but we could see clouds down in the Ophir Valley.
    Crazy Colorado weather. We went through a hail storm in Ophir while it was sunny above and below town.

    Most of those photos are Dean's (from DUHlores) with the F800.
    The Ophir side was in great shape. Most of the loose stuff is packed down and some of the road once down in the trees has been graded since my last ride over this way.
