Photos from Four Corners Monument

When we made our trip last year, we had no direction. We had somewhere we had to be on a certain date and the route we took to get there was of no consequence. There was one thing I wanted to do and it was stand in four states at once at Four Corners Monument. Somehow, we completely missed it even though we had to have been within 50 miles of it. I have no excuse, I must have missed the sign. Luckily, it was directly on the route from the Grand Canyon to Cortez, CO. I mean, I did …

Photos from our visit to Cortez, CO

Last year, Tanya and I made a 30 day, 20 state, 8,000 mile road trip. One of our favorite establishments we encountered during the entire trip was Main Street Brewery in Cortez, CO. To be honest, our entire trip centered around going back to Cortez just to dine and drink there. I was looking forward to seeing Rudy, the owner, however I discovered he retired last September. I met Janet, the new owner. She assured me that they still used the same beef and retained the same brew master, so all was good. We even returned the next day to …

Grand Junction to Denver Pictures

Photos From I-70 In Colorado The ride from Grand Junction to Denver, CO Wednesday morning, I continued my ride to the 70th Annual Black Hills Rally and Races from Grand Junction, CO. I was doing well on the amount of miles traveled per day, so I was able to stop a little more frequently and enjoy the Colorado beauty found along I-70. This included going through the Eisenhower Tunnel, which is over 11,000 feet in elevation. This resulted in the temperatures dropping to the high 70’s and low 80’s. After spending the last few days in the high 90’s and …

The Road To Sturgis

Photos From Day One of the Ride To Sturgis [adrotate group=”6″] Torrance, CA to Grand Junction, CO 2010 was the 70th Annual Black Hills Rally & Races in Sturgis, S.D. The last time I went was in 2006 and I swore I would never return due to the amount of people that were now attending. If they all came on motorcycles instead of dragging them along on trailers it would not be so bad, but Sturgis just was not built for one million people. Since I got a new bike, and the price of gas went up, I figured it …

Rocky Mountain High

Day 223 of my picture a day project, and day three of my ride to Sturgis. Today I rode from Grand Junction, through Denver and into Cheyenne, WY. The height of my journey would have to be the Eisenhower Tunnel, since it is above 11,000 feet. The down side was that the wind was so bad going out of Denver that it blew my helmet cam off. Really sucks as I had gotten some great videos. Oh well. This photo was taken shortly after I realized that I was no longer the owner of a helmet cam.

Grand Junction

Last night I rode to Mesquite, NV. I stopped in Henderson and met a friend for dinner. He then joined me for about 30 miles. It was the slowest I have ridden this entire trip (but worth it). I started the day off by riding through the Virgin River Gorge on I-15. That place is amazing. I used my helmet cam, so videos will be up after I get home. I happened to have a bug hit my lens with messed up 10 of my 30 videos. My day 222 picture of the day is what a guy looks like …
