Definitely a moto area
These motos are in the open area...they can ride where ever they please. I imagine the majority of motos spend their time playing in these areas looks like fun.
Meaning less traffic on the singletrack that ran from the canyons up to the ridges thru junipers
This canyon wall had some greens and purples that I couldn't capture on camera
The 2.4 ardent continues to impress me, real happy with this tire...farewell stouts
The upper portion of spike trail still had some wet spots and patches of snow. The scandal has ample clearance
Took a break at the top of black ridge to take in the views peering into the gunnison gorge.
Very center of this picture you might be able to make out the gunnison river
Buff singletrack- not too motoed out
Great thing about the western slope is you get more daylight in the evening. Didn't get dark until 6:20 and that afternoon snow shower never came. Great day rode for 4 hours in shorts.
Cooked dinner and crashed... car campin style on BLM land doesn't get easier. Had big riding plans until I woke up to this.
Got down to 15 degrees and laid 1/2-1" of dry powder. Funny didn't snow in Grand Junction and didn't snow towards Montrose- the snow just hit where I was at. The gods must be laughing. No more big ride. Dog didn't mind.
Peach Valley OHV definitely seems like a viable alternative to Grand Junction and Fruita especially if you want to escape the masses.
