I know, I know. I haven’t posted in a long time and I haven’t posted about my trip back east this past summer either.  I’ll get to that.

I took a trip back in September to see the fall leaves. It was a “loop” that encompassed the headwaters of the Rio Grande river, the Sand dunes national park, as well as the standard fare of Colorado beauty.

Fall colors

The route took us through Gunnison and into Lake City. We spent the night in Lake City, traveling to Crede and points beyond the next morning.

“Pearl” was especially photogenic among the Aspens.

North Clear Creek Falls


North Clear Creek Falls was breathtaking in the afternoon sun, with the bottom just falling out of the plateau.

Sand Dunes

It’s interesting to see sand dunes in the middle of a high plains valley. It was a great trip with lots of colors and plenty of twisties. Our stay in Lake City was no less epic as we stayed in the same hostel that my daughter and I visited back in 2010. Not much had changed (in a good way).

My next moto blog will contain a lot more detail, pictures, and even video.
