The original plan was to head up to Turkey Flats, but when I got up this morning, I decided to go the other direction and headed up to Grand Mesa for a ride on West Bench Trail.
I really need to shake my take off super early "beat the heat" mentality. When I got up there this morning everything was still a bit damp and in some places pretty soft from the bit of moisture last night. Not sloppy, but wet enough to make my tires slip around a bit on the rocks. After reaching the fence and turning around, the sun had evaporated the excess moisture and conditions were perfect. And, I did not see another soul or set of tracks all day.
A few pics to document the journey. I was solo so only scenery shots.

Great solitary ride away from the valley heat.
