    Hope Random Colorado pics.........

    So I never got around to properly sorting out the pics I took on last years trip, and I know a few people were interested - here's a sampling.

    1 - DBB, very fun little drop down into the first switchback/hairpin - I made it first attempt with never experiencing one of these before.
    2 - DBB, looking back from said ridge above.
    3 - DBB again
    4 - Bumble Bee
    5 - 'Hopper having lunhc - A la Beetle
    6 - Entering Blue Sky
    7 - Sun Flower at intersection of BS and Coyote Ridge
    8 - Mtn Lion, Golden gate Canyon State Park, lower section (could be wrong, but we were on Lions and then proceeded criss crossing a riverbed)
    9 - Mineral Belt Loop, leadville
    10 - Moi, compliments of a "nice" ranger

    Updated the pics with descriptions

    LMAO that would be the Columbine climb during the Leadville trail 100. Didn't impress me too much that they set it up like they did if you weren't in the first 20-30% or so you basically had a hike a bike for 2 miles going to the turn around - totally unnesscery IMHO. Was a very narrow road and one side was quite rutted so the people coming donw were coming too damned close for you to be able to ride around those hiking. - it was a biatch.

    Cool-blue Rhythm thanks

    I'll be up from August 15th till Sept 10th. Will be staying around the SW of Ft.Collins along Harmony where it kind turns into CR 38E. Plans so far, BS/Coyote/DBB, Lorry/H'tooth, Bob Cat and anything else close. Would like to hit up Hall Ranch (thinking of making a day of it and riding down in the AM, ride Hall, have lunch and hang out, ride back in the PM), Lions Gulch and maybe a few others if possible.

    Hope

    I think that's already in my "few others" list but that requires a vehicle if I'm right and a little drive slightly S.West.

    Yeah, we'll definitely be hitting some stuff in that area while you're here.

    Thanks for the compliment Ed and everyone else. Hoping that now I have a notebook I'll be doing daily or so photo updates of my trip.

    Looking forward to anything you guys are willling to show me, just hope it isn't to knar core for my island skillz That sweet rear wheel you built me will definitely help though in the tech moves - engagment of the Pro2 SS/trials hub is off da hook compared to what I'm accustomed to,can't wait to get the front wheel to match with DT RWS or 20mm TA if that other thing comes through
