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!
