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 Mountains. I enjoy motorcycling, both street and dirt, so I keep GPS tracks of my travels to share along with photographs and videos. Oh, the wildflowers aren't bad either!

It’s snowing today. Too bad. Yesterday it sure wasn’t. In fact, Montrose (Colorado) sported temps of 70 degrees! And the adobe formations north of Montrose were dry! What’s that mean? Go riding! So I trailered my Yamaha XT-250 up to … Continue reading
