Summer Vacation – Nannette Becker

We've had an amazing 2 week trip in Colorado and Utah following bits and pieces of the CAM1000, COBDR, UTBDR, and featured gravel roads by Butler Maps. We entered out of Colorado Springs onto Old Stage Rd to Gold Camp Rd.

We headed to Cripple Creek to Caon City using Old Shelf Rd. Its a one lane dirt road through a rugged canyon. Out of Caon City we found Skyline Drive and what a view!

This is the backway we took up on Lands End Rd to Grand Mesa Colorado. Yes ... Those are roads and yes we drove it up. We had scattered showers.. But what the hey with views like this...

We surfed the sands of Utah.. In section 2 and 3 of UTBDR.

We encountered deep sections of sand.. And patches of this...

We are not in Colorado. But I have to say I was so happy to be in the cool elevation again. Temps were in the 100's.

Got dirty in on the way to Gateway... And rode the black diamond road in section 4 of UTBDR

(John Brown Canyon, I think) ^Gateway Monument

We went to National Monument out of Grand Junction

Took the backroad to Grand Mesa on Lands End Rd. Yes those are roads - and yes we rode them. Scattered showers but who cares!? Look at views and its vacation!!

Did some rock climbing... Too many passes to remember...

Kicked more dirt...

Had good company...

Got down and dirty ... No we really did!

*Important*.
When Butler Maps states "impassable when wet". Please... Its true! Or else you will be wondering

where the hell your wife went...

Btw... mud IS evil!! Not a happy camper why 1) Rained and hailed so bad.. Dropped it 2 times! It looks innocent but its absolutely evil! Lol. 2) Walmart Frogg Suit $28

Did some camping...

I have to say, there were times I thought I would fall off the road and bash my head on passes of shale, boulders and baby heads at elevations of 14,000 But so happy to report that I didn't!! And all 4 of us came back in one piece! I can't wait for my (our) ;) next adventure!

*We cant either!... Properly done! ~ Ed.
