THE DALTON HIGHWAY
This is kind of what thrills me the most...
Not knowing what lies ahead.
I'm still about 60
miles from Steamboat Springs with no shortage of scenery. I did see a lot of wild life on this trip, but, they wouldn't cooperate with the camera. Wild life running wild.
The last time I rode a horse, it left me in mid air when spooked by a wind blown pile of leaves. I hit the ground hard. Not a fan of riding horses. I would love to try again though.
U.S.40 goes a long way in Colorado. Apparently I've got another 65.2 miles to go.
Got lucky with the weather. It seems like the rain was @ my back today.
I will follow this person. Looks knowledgeable.
Part of Winter Parks Ski area.
This is where Dale lives & works.
Another Ski area to put on my list.
Introducing Dale Eversole. He waved me over to find out what the heck I was riding. He was amazed @ my bike. I think he had recently tipped a few cold ones. Seems like a great guy to ski with.
The back side of the pass. All down hill.
I have a hard time with this name. It won't stick to my brain.
It is cold & rainy.
Many National Forest out here. Lets go, start traveling. This land is our land...
I had to pull a stunt to get around this slow poke.
Up down, Up down...
This rain will hit hard, but, for only 5 minutes. The temperature dropped about 15 degrees.
I've heard a lot about the Loveland Pass. A nice ride.
I didn't expect to go up into the mountains. A pleasant surprise.
Inside Arapahoe Basin. Great skiing.
My ski buddy, Ray Paquette & I sat on this deck between runs a while back.
One of my favorite ski areas.
Up to A-Basin.
The Dillon Reservoir.
I70 to The Loveland Pass.
Frisco is a small town.
Breckenridge is a big ski area.
I have not skied Copper Mtn yet.
Vail was a blast, 10 years ago...
This view is the other side of the ride to Aspen.
I70, got to love it.
I'll have a #1 with cheese & no onion-medium. I'm a BurgerKing fan. They also have wifi.
Does 75 mean 80?
That was an enjoyable piece of road.
I feel like turning around & going back. REALLY.
This will pleasantly get me where I'm going.
If somebody knows this Mtn, please comment. I put a lot of time in looking @ it.
Finally get to this view. Have seen it on the horizon.
Will the road turn toward this? Yes it will.
Sometimes, when you head toward a horizon, you expect to see a town when you get there.
Looks good ahead.
I love this ride. I've also learned something about zooming in.
