2014 Moto Trip

DAY 1 – Dinosaur National Park

Today I leave on a loop trip through Utah (Bryce, Grand Staircase, Bridges) and Colorado (Durango, Black Canyon, Crested Butte, Salida and Rocky Mountain National Parks).

Is all this gear going to fit?

A beautiful Colorado morning for a ride. Up the Poudre Canyon, over Cameron Pass, over Rabbit Ears Pass, through Steamboat Springs with temps in the 60’s and 70’s.

Past my favorite ranch gate near Dinosaur National Park, and temps soared to the high 80’s. Great to find my campsite on the Green River, strip off my riding gear and enjoy the cool night air.

Love this ranch gate, near Blue Mountain, CO

Lots of Sinclair gas stations in this area. Quite appropriate, don’t you think?
