    Locoyokel's got it... 403.

    And climbing 403 from the Gothic side? Why on earth would you do that? Was someone playing a joke on you?

    Probably someone told me it was "impossible" to climb up 403 from the Gothic side and I said "sounds good to me!" Since I was parked on Gothic (you used to be able to park on Gothic), I did an out and back. These are all hazy memories but I don't remember ever complaining about the steepness of any climb. It was all just a good workout. Descending was never the priority for me.

    Nope! I think Mustang doesn't slope away as steeply (at least in the open areas).

    So what is BKXC up to these days?

    Why, riding Pisgah with Send It Sarah

    Those North Carolina trails have their own particular type of chunk

    He's been on a 50 state ride but that's coming to a halt what with all the shut downs

    For anyone that hasn't been out there, you should put it at or near the top of the bucket list... the riding in Pisgah is absolutely fantastic, and completely different than anything we've got here.

    Parkour training in England during the lockdown

    In a previous lifetime I had the upper body strength to do a lot of this stuff but never the balls for the heights involved

    Here's small groups of Storror training. Jumps they take for granted I would never have attempted in a million years

    Herman Gulch! That rock garden is a bit of a challenge while you're climbing up!

    How about this one? This is a tough climb that most have only done as a descent. I haven't gotten this climb yet, or else I wouldn't have taken the photo!

    Nope, that gnar on Herman Gulch is WAY worse than this - this is only blue/black as a descent. I would never even attempt that one root/rock nasty section on Herman Gulch, up or down.

    OK...a hint - this is halfway through a car shuttle where you climb almost as much as you descend.

    Colorado Trail between Kenosha and Breck? It looks like the rocky/rooty section a few miles into the descent off the backside of Georgia Pass.

    These pictures remind me of the Blue Ridge. Rocks, roots and actual soil. Decomposed granite is for the birds.

    Yeah, he's got biking skills and a great laugh. I figured you'd crossed paths with him a few times.

    That area always struck me as one with massive potential. Really raw terrain. Relatively close to Fort Collins but so little use.

    Back before my wife and I got married, we went camping out near North Sheep Mountain. We parked on Johnny Park Road and went down Coulson Gulch to the St Vrain. Which was REALLY flowing at that time. We had planned to try to cross it and keep on going but there was no chance, short of a rope bridge, which would have required me to swim across 40ft of raging snow melt. Pitched the tent, made dinner and enjoyed the cool mountain air.

    I might be mistaken but I think there's a pretty big section of rapids, maybe event a waterfall, just up the creek from there, too.

    Tons and tons of potential in there and few people. We didn't encounter anyone else for the first 3 1/2 hours yesterday.

    RAT Trails in Ridgway? I haven't been down there in probably 7-8 years so I have no idea which one, but I think that's Sneffels in the background right?

    Yep, I think this is near the beginning of the Big Cheese. Some really fun flowy trails (Rat Trap, Squeaker, the Maze, Speedy Gonzalez, Double Cross, etc). Perfect for me and my daughters to ride together.

    In general, I was really impressed with Ridgway and the area. We did the Ouray Via Ferrata and had a blast, plus kayaking, hiking, biking, etc.

    Did you know Ridgway before this trip? I drove through the area during a rainstorm a few years ago, Mt. Sneffels was hidden behind a fog bank, be nice to see it like you saw it.

    I did not know Ridgway prior to this trip. I'd only been in the area one time before, going to Ouray and Silverton 25 years ago for my honeymoon.

    Anyway, we based ourselves out of Ridgway State Park for 4 nights and Top of the Pines campground for another 2. Lots to do with easy day trips to Telluride, Silverton, Ouray, and the Black Canyon of the Gunnison.

    I'm jealous of the light you had when taking pics of that mountain range. I only know Ridgway from driving through it, like you a loooong time ago, down to Telluride before Telluride had an airport. Back then downtown T was a wasteland of boarded up store fronts. But like they say, that was then, this is now.

    Thanks for reminding me of that area, it's time I re-visited it.

    Well worth the effort. Honestly, this trip was our fallback plan. We were supposed to be hiking the West Coast Trail on Vancouver Island. We travel a lot internationally. This trip reminded me that there are awesome places within a short drive's reach that I need to make an effort to go see.

    This describes us last summer. After tons of out-of-state and overseas travel the past few years, we spent a ton of time exploring our own back yard here in Colorado last summer: Salida, Sand Dunes, CB, Ouray, Telluride, Glenwood, Marble, Aspen, Twin Lakes, Crystal, Winter Park, etc. As much as we love to travel all over the world, we always love coming back home to Colorado. I've lived here over half a century and there is still a bunch I haven't seen.

    Yep, I turned 50 on this trip last week and realized I've now spent more than half of my life living in Colorado. Traveling is awesome and I've seen and lived in many many different places. But, it also reminds me how good we have it here in Colorado. There are very few places I've visited that I'd rather live. The South Island of New Zealand being one of them.

    Yeah, I love crossing the Colorado border with the welcome sign. I've traveled most of the state (except for the eastern plains) and drove down through Telluride many times (lots of riding on a fully rigid Rockhopper I think) down over Lizard Head Pass through Rico and on south. That trip I did every year during Aspen season.

    But it's been a long time since I've been down there and, as I type this, I'm coming up with a photo tour itenarary for a long week. I've been just defaulting to going up to Summit County (a one hour drive instead of a 7 hour drive) but I'm burnt out on that trip.

    Baker, if you haven't been to Crested Butte lately, do that during wildflower season in July. I stay at Rosy Lane up from Almont. You can drive over Cottonwood Pass now and descend past Taylor Reservoir down Taylor Canyon. That I'll do again this summer a few times. I think there's some riding up in CB, not sure though

    We hit our 50th state a couple of years ago on my wife's 50th b-day and have found few places in the US that we like as much as Colorado, but a part time residence on the South Island of NZ has been in our long-term goals ever since our first visit there 16 years ago. The area around Lauterbrunnen in Switzerland would be another possibility.

    I haven't been to CB since before kids, so that means over 16 years. I need to get back. Heck, I have property at Trout Creek Pass that I go to semi-regularly, but never get over to CB. Thanks for the reminder!

    This should be super easy. Still a favorite riding destination of mine after 27 years of riding here...

    GoG is in the far background of this pic, under the wispy (smoky?) clouds. So, this is east of GoG...

    Saw this on Patagonia_MTB's IG feed. I'm pretty sure I know where it is. Wondering what other people think.

    I have no idea, but IF it's in Colorado, I'd say the road to Lake Como in the Sangre de Cristos (I've never been, only read about it)?

    Boulder Mountain, UT. Cool video.

    There is a group doing that around here and they post some photos of some impressive recoveries.

    It's always good to see a group who knows what they're doing working efficiently as a team. You might take for granted the decisions they made along the way were the only ones they could have made but you'd be just guessing. They made the right decisions every step of the way, including what equipment they brought to the job.

    I also enjoyed watching the cameramen scrambling around getting relevant angles. Usually there's two dogs along for a rescue but maybe one was enough for this one.

    From a technical/skillz perspective, how difficult/dangerous is running that river?

    Cows

    I see thousands of them out in the fields, on the sides of and in the middle of the roads I travel on my photo trips. I wonder what they're thinking, if anything other than eating

    So here's a vid that might answer that question, like maybe there's more going on in their heads than you might think

    Name this trail

    In fact, name both these trails. It was a beautiful afternoon, hope you all were out enjoying it

    Left click the pics after reading the descriptions

    Last switchback to the top

    Name that location-d72_8048.jpg

    Name that location-d72_8049.jpg

    A ways to the north and you can go left

    Name that location-d72_8055.jpg

    or right

    Name that location-d72_8053.jpg

    On the way back down, the sun just a few inches from the top of the foothills

    Name that location-d72_8064.jpg

    Not much daylight left now

    Name that location-d72_8088.jpg

    Same area as yesterday, from the other side

    Another day, another sunset

    Looking back from the other end of the trail I was on yesterday. I used to ride the trails here on injured days. When what I needed was to pedal gently and just get around on my bike

    Left click on the pics after reading the descriptions

    Name that location-d72_8111.jpg

    Looking west. Sunset is just about to happen. I saw plumes of dust in the distance from riders slicing and dicing on their way towards me. When one group passed, at first I thought they were just little kids. But the guy at the back, the shortest of all of them, had a red beard a foot long

    Name that location-d72_8115.jpg

    This particular trail loops through the meadow. Here's looking north at the junction

    Name that location-d72_8116.jpg

    Gnarly this isn't but it does have some sweet flow

    Name that location-d72_8124.jpg

    Time to head back

    Name that location-d72_8125.jpg

    Yup, sunset again. Funny how that happens every day

    Name that location-d72_8140.jpg
