North Loop Trail at Mushroom Rock.

Another Day, Another Mile

Despite having a brake pad fall out during my mountain bike ride, I was able to find and replace it, and put in a solid 21 miles at Mushroom Rock here in Carbondale, CO.  I found out the hard way that the sun is going down earlier and earlier, as I was still out in the thick of it and […]

Capital Peak

I took this picture during a mountain bike ride to Hay Park.  I actually took it as we (myself and two guy, Brian and Shawn I met) while we were trying not to get lost finding a trail.  We eventually found it but it took some detective work on our part.  Some day I would like to go hike up […]

Dirt Bag Living Part 2

Dirt Bag Living Part 2

I left Durango on a Monday.  I drove north for four hours going through Silverton, Ouray, Montrose, Delta, Paonia, and finally arrived in Carbondale (sometimes called Bonedale).  On the way into town I passed my friend Michele, the only person I know in town.  She was on her way to ride Prince Creek, a local mountain bike trail system.  I joined […]

View of the Roaring Fork Valley.

Valley View

Yesterday I went for a mountain bike ride at Mushroom Rock and this time I explore deeper into the bush. Not a good thing as I flatted almost at the furtherest point from the trailhead. I used my only tube and the break to catch my breath. Shortly after my flat I was blessed with this view through the trees […]

So I didn’t get many chances to capture the clouds yesterday but here is the best one for comparison to yesterdays Denali picture.  THis is Mt. Sopris after a long night of rain.  It might have been rain for us but the higher elevations got snow.  I’m not in Washington any more!   Scatman Get out there! Wondering how you […]

Fading light at Prince Creek.

Fading Light Ride

Last night I went for another mountain bike ride up at Prince Creek.  Nic one of the owners of Aloha Bike took me on a few new trails.  We left late and knew we would finish close to dark, and that we did.  This picture was from a little earlier in the ride but you can see the light is […]

Natures Tapestry

Trail

Yesterday I went to Price Creek to ride with my friend Michele.  It was a mellow ride so I stopped to take pictures and I particularly like this one.  It sums up the day nicely.  Crisp blue sky, dry dirt ribbon of a trail, fresh green striving plants and stark brown dying plants making up natures tapestry.   Scatman Get […]

Mt. Sopris with rainbow and sprinkler.

Mt. Sopris

Yesterday I went up and I mean up a country road outside of Carbondale on my road bike and this is what I was rewarded with.  Mt. Sopris, Rainbows, and the watering of the “lawn”.  There was no rain so this rainbow was a direct result of the sprinkler.   Scatman Get out there! Wondering how you can support the […]

Open Road, CR109 in Carbondale, CO.

The Open Road

Today’s picture of the day comes from beautiful Carbondale, Co. I took this picture while on a road bike ride on CR109. The clouds were just amazing. They look like this when their not thunder clouds speeding up the valley, which there are a lot of most days. This road screamed “Ride FAST!”. It was rolling, scenic and had a […]
