    Default Social Distancing Western Slope Colorado style

    Went out yesterday, and took this, its on an S3 on my bar, yea, I am getting a GoPro, but I decided that as long as I am isolated, and I can ride, I will keep videos coming in of my local loops and canyons, give people something to watch besides Virus stuff.

    This is from my home to a local road cut off that allows residents of Nucla Colorado to drop on to our big Hwy 141 without having to deal with ALL THAT GOD DAMNED NATURITA TRAFFIC. Its Horrible!!!!!!! LOL

    I start at home, go out on the 141, and then I take the CC Road (Calamity Canyon Road) up through the canyon to its exit.

    7 minutes of distraction, hope you enjoy.

    Later in the week, I will head out to Disappointment Valley, its a pretty piece of desert out on the way to a place called Slick Rock. And Google Tagabauche/Unaweep Bi-Way, its the best kept secret in Colorado, I knew when I visited, this is where I had to live. This weekend, I will take us up and down Norwood Hill....more on that fatal climb later....

    I will be getting an improved camera, the Eagle has to **** first.....

    Thanks for the kind words everyone.

    That area looks identical to eastern Oregon. Thanks for sharing your ride.

    I went by your house 2 1/2 years ago. We rode from Durango to Ridgway (MDH). Then 145 to 141. I think 141 could be classified as one of the loneliest highways. I think it was about 60 miles to 491 and we only saw 4 or 5 vehicles going the other way. Then we took 184 back to Durango. Nice days ride. Very beautiful country. I enjoyed riding along with you today..... Jim

    Thank you for sharing that beautiful ride with us. I am thankful for the sparsely populated area we also live in. We got spoiled when we did our 20 year stint in Alaska.

    I grew up in Haines Alaska, I miss it too.

    I have another video loading up tonight. I dont want to make my son cry as our cruddy legacy ADSL internet is SLOW. SO I will load it after he is done killing aliens and such.

    Thanks everyone.

    Love the RSS. When I was in California running through Trabuco Canyon to Cook's Corner, it was the only other Spyders I would see.
