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!

This is a short tour of what I believe to be an old barracks building near a mine in Picayne Gulch, near the ghost town of Animas Forks, Colorado, both in San Juan County. The nearest “real” town is Silverton. … Continue reading
I was up in the San Juan Mountains today (San Juan County, Colorado, between Ouray and Silverton). This is a five minute snatch of video I took with my GoPro Hero2 HD helmet camera. It starts on the east side … Continue reading
Well, after climbing Corkscrew, what’s better than lunch in Silverton? And, after lunch, why not look in on the train?
I made it to within a hundred yards of Engineer Pass today. I’m amazed the roads are open this early in the season! We’re at least a month early in terms of road openings. Engineer Pass Road itself (Ouray County … Continue reading

Wednesday and Thursday of this week, I was up in the Ironton Park area, about 7 miles south of Ouray, where the color was at its peak and quite spectacular. Also, some great photos continuing south up to Red Mountain … Continue reading
Gary and I were at it again today, this time at Clear Lake in San Juan County.
This morning I took San Juan, Colorado, County Road 12 up to Clear Lake. The GPS track and pictures are found by going to this post. I’d concentrated so much on the road that I didn’t see the wildflowers at … Continue reading
