Welcome to Dave Casler’s site and blog!
I like to share information and that's what this site is for. I love living in Southwestern Colorado in the San Juan Mountains, part of the Rocky Mountain range. I enjoy motorcycling, both street and dirt, so I keep GPS tracks of my travels to share along with photographs. Oh, the wildflowers aren't bad either!

Kit Cassingham took this video while we were all racking our brains about the best way to get the motorcycle, at that point a dead weight, up a very steep trail. If I look like I’m exhausted, it’s because I … Continue reading
What a mess! It took three people helping to get me out of it. But I’m getting ahead of myself. It seemed so simple. The “Flat Top Peach Valley Recreation Area Trail System Map” the BLM puts out has a … Continue reading
On April 9th, after enjoying a few hours in the adobe dunes just north of Montrose, Colorado, I took a side trip. Kinikin Road connects US Hwy 50, east of Montrose and just east of the entrance to the Black … Continue reading

The agenda yesterday (Friday) was more exploration of Peach Valley. I’ll put the GPS track in a separate post because it’s a little complex and bears its own explanation. The area I explored is just to the north of the … Continue reading
This evening I was wandering around back roads in Millionaire Valley and stumbled across a road I didn’t know existed. And it led to a great view! It turns out the road leads to a gravel pit—one completely out of … Continue reading
