Gone but not forgotten.

Life in Grand Junction is, well - - - Grand. Still exploring, and there is soo much to uncover.



Atop the Grand Mesa, World’s largest Mesa.


Meredith, CO store. Only took me 3 1/2 hrs this year to get there vs 2 days last year from SA.

Re: Gone but not forgotten.

We are already back in Austin, one of our dogs got hurt soon as we got to Ouray so we had to load up and drove straight through back to Austin Sunday morning and our dog is now in surgery for two torn ACL's. So a lot of driving there and back and no riding Plus the trees are turning colors right now. At least our dog should make a full recovery.

There is a great dirt ride along that ridge to the East of 141. You can see it here,



It is FS 402, also called Divide Road. It is a nice easy ride, perfect for big bikes, with lots of nice scenery along the way. Blue tracks were big bike days and red tracks were small bike days. There are also a lot of fun roads down there around Mt Wilson, West of Telluride. You can loop West of the mountain and come out on 141 at several different places. Most of it is big bike friendly.

Here are the actual GPX tracks from the image above (right click and save as),

The number one rule for this forum!
Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen. Eph 4:29 (NIV)
Think before you post. Leave out the vulgarity, personal attacks and foul language!

Quote:
"However lofty the goals, if the means be depraved, the result must reflect that depravity." - Leonard E. Read

Lies are fragile. They require constant attentiveness to keep them alive. The exposure of a single truth can rip through an ocean of lies, evaporating it instantly. - Brandon Smith

If you want government to intervene domestically, you’re a liberal. If you want government to intervene overseas, you’re a conservative. If you want government to intervene everywhere, you’re a moderate. If you don’t want government to intervene anywhere, you’re an extremist. — Joe Sobran

It is no crime to be ignorant of economics, which is, after all, a specialized discipline and one that most people consider to be a ‘dismal science.' But it is totally irresponsible to have a loud and vociferous opinion on economic subjects while remaining in this state of ignorance. – Murray N. Rothbard

When one possessed of the Truth suffers from a heavy heart he is susceptible to a more dangerous affliction — the craving for power to eradicate error, to cause Truth to triumph by force. - Frank Chodorov

Where politicians flourish, long history has harshly taught us, people and their liberty wither. Where the state is god and the "public interest" worshipped, individual man will be found bleeding upon the altar. - Karl Hess

The accepted wisdom is that without the state, society would collapse into lawlessness and crime. In fact, lawlessness and crime define the very nature of the state and the society organized by it. - Bionic Mosquito

But the myth of the rule of law does more than render the people submissive to state authority; it also turns them into the state's accomplices in the exercise of its power. For people who would ordinarily consider it a great evil to deprive individuals of their rights or oppress politically powerless minority groups will respond with patriotic fervor when these same actions are described as upholding the rule of law. - John Hasnas
