    Heading out to John's Canyon. You could see the road from my hike last night.

    The scenery gets even better after you turn back into John's Canyon.

    Went to the creek before turning around.

    Back out to the highway and enough time left to go through Valley of the Gods.

    Nobody around out here.

    So I took it pretty fast. I've been on this road a few times, but always with a big bike loaded with camp gear. Kinda fun on the little red pig.

    And back up the dugway.

    About 80 miles today, too.
    Had camp packed up and was on the road home by 3ish.
    I decided to take the northern route home, taking 261 north to 95, Blanding and Monticello. It's within one mile of being the same distance from my house.

    Last ride of the season. Beautiful, brisk morning ride north over the passes with the intent to turn around in Ouray.
    But it was just too nice to not just do the full loop.
    So, onto 62 and 145 with a quick stop south of Rico at the bottom of Scotch Creek.

    Did the full loop of 250 miles in just under 5 hours.

    This little guy followed me home in November. Looks too nice to get dirty, but I'm sure I can fix that. Should be a good bike for some trails I've been hesitant to take the 250 on. And a decent learner bike for my boys - plated and insured.

    That's it for 2019.
    I have a flight booked to Costa Rica in April with a DR650 ready for me down there.
    Happy 2020 you FF's.
