While planning alternate routes for our trip in June, which actually go the same way but from the other direction, I've seen that we will be crossing the mountains between Great Sand Dunes NP and Mesa Verda NP. Any suggestions on some roads/trails? My friend will be on a R1100R but has the ability to do some trail riding. I will be on a gray R1150GS with Jesse Bags and the Ohio plate MCSUV. I would like to end up in Cortez and have a cold one at the micro brewery downtown.
