Peeper update 9/29... (a few days late) Went over Red Mtn Pass. The nicest colors so far. Both sides have good color accentuating a fantastic mountain setting. The weather was cold, wet and windy the whole trip from Montrose to Durango. Arghhh. It snowed , gorpple to be specific, over the top. I stopped to turn up my heated jacket. The spot was in the Aspen trees. I forgot how pretty the Aspen forest is with the gold leaf carpet. I thought I was pretty tough pushing on in the cold until another guy came down off the pass on a Harley, no helmet, no gloves. He waved and smiled as he passed. A strong old rocker. Over the last couple days I continued west across southern Utah. The section from Torrey to Escalante was quite colorful. I am turning north tomorrow from Cedar City back to ID. I am executing my contingency plan mentioned earlier, to put the bike in a uHaul. It is forecast to be snowing back home. Oh well. The ride was fun.
