ATV Ride: Lower Elevations of the Uncompahgre Plateau

Last Wednesday found me and friends going along for a ride with several members of the local ATV club (it was not an official club ride—just informal). The GPS track shows where we parked and then went over trails that ranged from nicely-maintained gravel roads to some rather hairy, steep slopes with big rocks strewn everywhere. The GPS track is at the bottom of this post, and you can see video from the ride by clicking here.

I should point out that Dry Creek was not dry.
