Colorado run Oct 2020
« on: October 25, 2020, 04:23:56 PM »

We got the chance to make a run to Colorado again this year! Wife had been fussing about the way the bike had been riding so before we left we add the Ohlins up front to match the rears. Thank you Smarty for getting us in and making this old bike ride and handle great again.

Done a little more digging on what was out there before we left.

Old set of tunnels that run under I-25 between Raton and Trinidad. the old town of Morley is in this area also but other than being able see it from the interstate that was as close as we could get the it.

Stopped at one of the many mountain lakes for a shot of coffee, and this little guy was sure happy for the company

Temperature was running around the low 60's so we really got lucky on the weather.

We wanted to try and hit what National Parks we could along the way. Not much of a sand person....it gets places I cant get it out of, but this was interesting to see here in the mountains. The sand dunes were pretty inpressive

We had not slowed down in previous trips long enough to explore much, but this trip we want to slow down and enjoy. St Elmo is one of those places you need to visit and enjoy a bit.
Being it was off season there wasn't the summer crowd and meet an gentleman buy the name of Chuck who owns the bed and breakfast there. He was very friendly and told a little history of the town. Wife and I think his bed and breakfast my be on our agenda if we get to repeat this trip again

One thing I wanted to accomplish on this trip was Cottonwood pass. As a kid I could remember my dad and I taking this to get to Taylor lake where we camped for a week. Just wanted the chance to see if it was as I remember it when young
