Mike C., Greg L. and I went out to ride 5 Miles of Hell (5MOH) last Thursday.  It was about 20 miles of trail total when you include the entry and exit.  But it took us most of the daylight hours to complete. The vivid colors of the rock against a blue sky assured that the cameras were perpetually out, consuming much of our time.
The extended exceptional weather made such a venture this late in the season possible.  Mike has been attempting to get me out there for several years now, but weather and circumstance have always thwarted the prospect.  Although the day was exhausting, I left thinking I wish I had gone sooner.

Dry and dusty conditions all day long.

The technical aspect of 5MOH is relentless and unmatched.  A nice challenge if your into that kind of thing.

Until next time.

Not my usual sport type post.  Just couldn't get enough of the leaves changing up on the Grand Mesa and who can resist the Blue Angels.  Unfortunately we are still suffering from a lot of haze from fires near and far.  So much so that even my filters couldn't completely handle it.

Bon and I got a late start, so I had to move fast to get any shots before the light faded.  But wow was there a sea of yellow and orange as we approached Powderhorn.  I can't recall ever seeing such a vast wave of color on the Mesa.

Bon sporting her favorite "Helmet" hair do.

A couple of young guys were long boarding the hill above Old Powderhorn.

Sorry that most of the shots were so similar.  I probably should have spread them out over a couple of other posts. But when the weather is cold maybe you can revisit these and remember a wonderful fall.
Until next time.

Since I haven't given this much attention in the last year or so I have a backlog of material. So here goes just some random photos from the last year plus.

Landon M's new ride!

First test ride.

There are more on the way.  Until next time.
