    I have been to most of the Utah & Colorado locations that you have photographed, and I must say that your images definitely capture the beauty that is the American West. :clap

    I really need to buy me a better camera and practice or take some classes. Your photos are amazing.

    Great report with all awesome photos.
    Really love the way you put your effort in every pix you took.
    I am sure you have spent a lot of time for them so that we can enjoy up here.
    Thank for share.

    Spectacular pictures and an excellent narrative. I love the areas that you traveled through. I frequent them as much as possible. I never grow tired of the solitude that one can find in the great Southwest.

    NICE ride report and pics Dave. I found the link on the murals thread. My wife and I were ahead of you about a month. All the Aspen higher up in your photos with no leaves left were bright yellow for us. And the yellow you captured was still green for us.
    I take all my pics with a Sony / DSC-HX5V point and shoot. It does pretty good, but I don't doctor up the photos after shooting them. It's an art that I might need to explore. I also need to stop more and take the time to frame more shots. 99 % of my pics are rolling shots. Most of them are not cropped.
    Thanks for quality. KEN
