Since everyone seems to enjoy seeing pictures of our rides, I submit these of my weekend outing to the Uncompahgre Plateau. It was a typical backcountry ride with lots of forest service roads and 4-wheel drive trails . . . not so many miles but lots of climbs and heavy braking on the downside.
This was one of the finest backcountry rides I've had in a long time. Bright blue skies, nearly had the place entirely to ourselves, and spectacular flowers. Plus my wife joined in the fun! She doesn't like the long distance road thing, but isn't afraid to get a little dirty on a backcountry route.
