    When I rode Sand Flats Rd there were an abundance of drifting tracks from sxs in the curves--blind curves too. It was the blind curves that had me on alert.

    If our Native friends could have named that pass, what would they have come up with? Heartbroken Pass maybe, Persecuted Pass, how about "White Hegemony Pass"?

    The story on that plaque is heartbreaking. I know that the Natives could also be vicious towards each other too, but at least they were equal foe.

    Ok now let the comments fly....

    Going back to 2014AUG and a ride through the Colorado National Monument in Grand Junction, CO. It's one of those rides where there is a spectacular view around every curve. Stop, take a picture, maybe get off the bike and take a picture. I rode both directions and not disappointed.

    It is definitely worth the trip! I'd recommend starting at the south end and heading north. I did the opposite, so it was freezing cold in Alpine in the morning and then over 90F in Morenci in the afternoon.
