From today's ride up, over and back on the world's largest mesa, Grand Mesa, topping out a bit over 11,000'.

For those of you who couldn't stick around for today's final ride, all I can say is, brutha, you missed it!
280 miles, 3 mountain passes (McClure Pass, about 8900'; Independence pass, 12,000'; and Monarch, around 11,000'), and we crossed the Continental divide TWICE. Oh, and PERFECT, perfect weather. What a day! Pics here:

I just wanted to thank Scott for taking his time to put this ride together on some of the best roads Steve & I have been on in a long time. I think I speak for everyone that rode with us. Look forward to next year.

Man oh man! I really hated missing this ride and after seeing this thread I really, really hate that I missed it.

Maybe next year. You are doing it next year. Right?
