It was warmer this year than last, coupled with a shorter route and later start made for some very pleasant riding up I-70. Plenty of color to keep us occupied too.
Stopped to get the camera out at the start of Independence Pass.
How about this for a lunch spot?
Kebler Pass heading into Crested Butte was next...
Here is the front lobby, and where we ate breakfast
Time for the Million Dollar Highway to Durango!
Met up with my Mom and Dad in Durango and boogied off to Mancos for lunch.
Played around with this pic of Karla, I keep a camera around my neck for stuff like this:
Delicious fare, our new favorite spot
It was very busy when we showed up, I managed to snag this picture in between rushes.
Yummy. Very fresh, I think the homemade soup was the show stopper.
Next was Arches National Park, I had reserved a campsite for us months ago in the only campground in the park. Although it was warmer in the Colorado mountains this year, it was noticeably cooler in the desert. Awesome!
Hahaha.... We thought we would take an air mattress this trip... Um, a little too big!
Karla wandered off to take some pictures
Thank you Karla for this picture!!
Lol I don't know why Mom and Karla put up with these nuts... (and how cute is Mom's table? She goes bananas, it's fun)
Sunday started early, we were going to meet up with Mom and Dad for breakfast then hit some twisties on the way home.
Love this road... "shortcut" from Moab to I-70.
Only Karla would need to pee in a landscape like this...
Took some pics while I waited
You get so far out here it looks like another planet
Grand Mesa was our second set of twisties for the day, infused with some excellent color!
Pictures from our lunch spot
Ha, Karla trying to get service on her phone. It worked!
