Yet another day on the Uncompahgre

Sunday, June 14, 2009

Amanda had to go into work today so I decided to head up onto the Uncompahgre and finish some trails I have started before and to check out a few new ones. I made a big loop by starting out in Escalante Canyon and following it up onto Love Mesa where I eventually joined Divide Road. I headed down the other side of the plateau through Casto Draw and made my way to Gateway. After fueling up, I headed up Sheep Creek and onto the Dolores Triangle. After looping around through Granite Creek, I headed back home through Glade Park.

Veteran’s Day on the Dolores Triangle

Veteran’s Day | Tuesday, November 11, 2008

Since I had today off for Veteran’s Day, I met up with Greg and we headed out to do some exploring on the Dolores Triangle. We experienced a little of everything today. We started out in the dusty desert and crossed the Dolores River twice. Then I had a bit of a setback when my lower radiator hose ruptured and I had to repair it on the trail. We followed some easy two-tracks with plenty of speed, and slowed down over plenty of bumpy rocky trail. There were even some ledges we needed to crawl over. We got lost a few times and got stopped by some dead ends. Towards the end of the day we even got to play in some snow. It was a great day!
