Motorcycle Trip to Colorado - July 2012
We’ll start in Salt Lake City, hook up on Hwy 40 toward Rangely, Colorado, then head south on Hwy 139 towards Grand Junction. CJ will be our first stop for the night. The next day we’ll continue heading south and hook up on Hwy 550 (Million Dollar Hwy), down through The San Juan National Forest, mining towns and the beautiful Rocky Mountains. Our 2nd stop for the night will be Durango. We’ll then head east on Hwy 160, up through the Rio Grande National Forest, then north on Hwy 149 towards Blue Mesa Reservoir. We’ll spend the night in Gunnision. After Gunnison, we’ll head west again, on Hwy 50, then north on 133 toward Glenwood Springs, taking I-70 West to Grand Junction for our last night.
The next day we’ll head home to Salt Lake City, like a horse heading to the barn. We are looking forward to a real relaxing ride, with beautiful vistas and challenging roads. Come follow along. I’ll be taking my laptop and will post pics and some narratives each night.
