The Road Less Travelled

Did another sublime ride today. Again a nice loop that can only be done with some fatter tires because of the rural roads, but it was gorgeous! The weather was mild, the sun was shining, the views were stunning, and the pedaling was easy. This loop went up and over Ute Pass and looped back via the Williams Fork Reservoir and the Green Mountain reservoir. I even witnessed a cattle drive, complete with cowboys (and a cowgirl) and sheep dogs driving the herd right next to the road. 63 miles, almost four hours on pavement and increasingly unimproved rural roads.
