Day's Riding: Campsite 5 mi NW of Radium to Rawlins, 189 mi.

Day 6: Colorado

Shortly after the previous photo my camera ran out of juice and I missed several good photo opportunities. So here I am after recharging the battery at a convenience store in Steamboat. Last night's camp was fraught with a heavy all-night rain that turned the dirt roads into mud. So the riding was extra challenging. Big Rock Creek, a normally passable crossing, had been flooded by beavers making a dam down-steam of the crossing. (View this place in Google Earth.) I waded 3/4 of the way across with the water over the top of my boots, until I came to a hole. So I turned back and rode around that short section. (note the loop on my map - Google couldn’t do the turn-around.) Reaching this c-store I plugged in my camera battery then spread things to dry in the sun. Note to self: don't forget to pack an extra camera battery next time!


Aspen Alley. The name is not mine, but actually quite well known among the locals and visitors.
