    Yes. Small world.
    That whole Alcon clan are my cousins.
    Same Lupe. We just buried him here in Ojo Feliz
    a couple of months ago. That is a sweet Elk
    Cut-out you have on the fence facing 518.
    Tree digger Eddy, your next door neighbor to the west is also my cuz.

    That's my cousin Phillips, our place is behind his. Sorry to hear about your Uncle. Him and my Mom were close. I always admired Joseph and that house he built by hand out back by the mountain

    My little girl used to stand by the fence fascinated by Eddys horses galloping up and down through the "Christmas trees"

    It was against the Wind till La Veta pass.
    Then it was like 80 mph coasting thru the pass
    then BRUTAL on 25. Not much color up thru
    The pipeline. Some up 10 to 11 k. Nipply this am
    In Manitou. Holy shit. Just saw weather prognosis.
    High of 45, here, on Monday. Looks like Wet is in
    My future. Bmon's also. Crazy times in Manitou in the
    Middle of Dark-ness. So this is civilization. Rather take
    My chances in the WilD.
    Ojo Bound, the long way shortly. Safe Rides, all.

    Yeah, I know. Kettle black, shit!!
    Packing up here in The Too and some
    Stoner walks up to me and calls me a Thunder goD.
    Then asks for Funds. So I gave him a breakfast bar.
    I ride a Yamahaaaa that is slightly louder than a Singer.

    image.jpeg Wintertime over Red Mountain Pass.
    Just enough rain /snow sleet hail to make it interesting.
    Colors did not suck over Marshall and Owl Creek.
    The other 1100 miles, were
    Rocky Mountain Spectacular.

    Those are not wintertime photos from 2016-2017. What are you talking about???? Maybe you went to BV for the ATV episode, which starts today.

    I am saying the 70 miles from Ouray to Durango on 550
    Were rather treacherous on a 800 lb. cruiser with
    Fairly worn rubber. The visibility was minimal the temps were in the low 30's and the road was sloppy. .That's all. ODC.

    Not in BV
    In Ojo Feliz at present.
    I was in Bueny three days ago
    waiting for Bmon "mike" to show up
    so we could ride west and south to check
    Out the Colors in the San Juan's.
    The views were stunning the weather, not so much.
    Once in New Mexico on 64 it lifted and the riding
    became pleasurable. odc.
