New Mexico and Into Colorado

Posted by on June 1, 2011

Day 14 New Mexico

Not that many pictures from today but have plenty of video that I cant add while on the road.

Highwayed it from SkyCity Casino where we slept to meet up with Hilary’s dad for a light lunch and some evil cats:

Later we meet up with a fellow ADVrider that guided us through some great twisty roads and some gravel, was a bit rough on my dad, and a bit dusty:

No pictures from the gravel but have great videos for when I get home.

Got some wear on the other most knobs:

Used all the knobs

Day 15 Into Colorado

Our host guided us to a lookout point near White Rock overlooking the rift where the land slowly separates:

The GPS tricked us into some back road behind some houses that was more like a dump and I caught a bed spring in the front wheel locking it up, rode very slow and didn’t fall but it was hard to get out:

We took some roads Tim had suggested and they were great with amazing views:

Nice view

Had another bolt come undone, nothing a zipty couldn’t fix:

Since we didn’t have time for all of them we ended with a 100 km long straight through the valley in the south part of the Rockies:

At least we started seeing some high peaks with snow still on them, more of that tomorrow.
