More of the Same.....High Country

Well, it's Friday, August 14th already...seems like it was just Monday. After my epic ride on Saturday I was able to get up and ride Scotch Creek to the CT and down salt Creek on Sunday. 26 miles, 3k of climbing and a great 3 hour ride. Again, the weather was flawless.

If you look close enough you can see Rico in the background.

The aspens are thick on Salt Creek Trail.

At the bottom of Slat Creek where it meets Ryman trail.

I had an impromptu day off on Tuesday so I took advantage of the perfect weather and chose to ride the single speed cross bike and did a loop over to Dunton and back to Rico. 61.5 miles and just under 4k of climbing. 4 hours and 14 minutes. It is about 1/2 pavement and 1/2 dirt road. A perfect ride for a cross bike with fat tires, well, not so fat, 35cc.

Lunch time.

The mean machine.

Dunton...a private little getaway where they have some hot springs. $2k a night can get you through the gate I hear.
