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!

Ouray, Colorado, County Roads 5, 7, and 9 are overlooked because they’re not in the “high country.” Well, that doesn’t mean the views aren’t just as spectacular. Given that the high country is still closed, I’ve been exploring some of … Continue reading

What a change in weather today! Yesterday’s video of County Road 24 shows drip, drip, drip. Today was nothing short of spectacular. I celebrated with a ride up Ouray County Roads 2 and 4. The video below shows three narrated … Continue reading
Here’s a video taken on a rainy May day along the length of Ouray, Colorado, County Road 24. This road is often overlooked by visitors because it’s in Pleasant Valley rather than way up in the high country. Yet it’s … Continue reading
