Well, a business trip to Salt Lake City was planned. Hmmmm, fly or ride? Be serious! Received permission from the bride to leave a little earlier, come back a little later. Kids will be OK. Brought the camera gear. Gonna try a trip-in-progress report. After work in SLC, will wander back to CO through the Utah canyonlands I've heard much about. Each night will post a few pics along with a highlight video... time, mechanical, and technical issues permitting . Will let the visuals do most of the narrative.
A highlight onboard ride video from today's journey... Berthoud Pass, Hot Sulfur Springs Canyon, Rabbit Ears Pass is here:
A Pass, A Canyon, A Pass - Streaming Video
Left mid-morning. Here's today's journey...
Several pics from the day:
A clean GS -Sacrilegious!- packed and ready to go:
Top of Berthoud Pass. Temps in the 30's. Looking to the south:
Just below the north side of the pass. Winter Park ski area about 15 minutes up ahead:
Pausing below the Rabbit Ears Pass namesake. We're about 15 miles from Steamboat Springs:
This ski area brings back many memories... where my four learned to ski (now snowboard), and subsequently break many bones . After all the wilderness, the condos here are quite a change.
Tomorrow is NW Colorado, Dinosaur Monument, and Utah along Hwy 40 to SLC. Will hopefully post images/vid. Friday afternoon will head towards southern UT (maybe Cedar City) for the night, then head east on Saturday exploring the Utah canyons. Hope to be in SW Colorado, maybe Cortez, Saturday night. If any recommendations or thoughts, please share!
