Here’s a little treat—fall color in Ouray County, Colorado, on a little side road tucked away at the south end of Ouray County Road 5 (after entering the Uncompahgre National Forest, it becomes Forest Road 852). The road to Moonshine … Continue reading
Quick update for roads I traveled today: Last Dollar Road near Telluride—I traveled it today. The color is at or near peak. I define peak as when the earliest trees lose their leaves. There is still some green, but mostly … Continue reading

Yesterday, a simple trip up Camp Bird Road from Ouray to check out where I’ll be stationed to help provide communications for Saturday’s Imogene Pass Run, turned into a trip all the way over the pass. I’d forgotten how rough … Continue reading
