Colorado Pain Tour

Just got back from a little 3 week adventure around some mountains in Colorado with 2 weeks of camping in Gunnison.

I have some pictures to show for it and some sore legs

Cottonwood Pass; always a killer, but so amazing once you reach the top!

My tent perched on top of the hill out at Hartman Rocks BLM.

The view of Gunnison from my camping spot every night for two weeks

Biking up highway 135 to Crested Butte, there were many scenic old cabins like this.

Taylor Reservoir

Amazing sunset over Buena Vista.

At the top of Monarch Pass. These Continental Divide passes are brutal!

Crested Butte

The West Elk Mountains

It snowed on me on the way back to Denver; that's Colorado in May for you. Overall, this was a breathtaking little tour!
