    Most of my pics will come from my helmet cam, but here’s all I have otherwise.

    Did you catch any fish in that lake up on Red Mtn? We saw you fishing there Friday morning

    No. I had some bites and lots of follows, but nothing landed.

    Cool! I also stopped to snap a pic there the night prior. Such a great area back there. I'm going back for sure.

    I wanted to give a big thank you to everyone who attended. I personally had a blast. I know it was pretty low key, but given the late start to getting it going, I was very pleased with what we pulled off.
    Let's not let WestFest die off. I heard that overall it sounds like people would prefer more of a KOA type setup, closer to town, more lodging options, etc.
    If someone wants to volunteer to have this in their area, please feel free to raise your hand. I would be glad to help in anyway. I know the campgrounds would need to be secured early, like this fall. We were too late by the time this got going, so the private land was limiting, but I really liked the remoteness, as well as the road to get there. Shoot me a PM on anything you liked or would have preferred to have seen.
    Let's hope for another epic WestFest in 2022!

    Arg, i wish this was posted in the Rockies Regional forum! I wonder how many others would have see it if it was posted there. I only found out b/c someone started a pictures thread in the Rockies forum. Sigh, maybe next year!

    We were surprised that when it was cross posted that it would be such an infraction that resulted in ban camp, but those are the rules. I guess just watch the Rally forum more dilligently.

    We had a great time! The hosts/organizers should be applauded for their efforts on our behalf. We are definitely interested in return visits. Next time I want to do Imogene!

    Thanks Marcus for showing us around. Thanks to everyone else who made us feel like part of a larger "family" of riders.
