This is my favorite picture of the entire crew. Although I only knew three of them prior to this trip (and two of the three I had only met once or twice), I had a fantastic time with them. It was a great group of folks and we had a blast together.
Here is the view from our hut for night #1. The road below doesn't look like much, but it was a tough grind on the way up the previous afternoon. We had a thunder storm move in on us and we got pretty wet and had some lightning strikes touch down pretty close to us!
This is another view of the San Juan mountains. Our hut for the first night was located on the right hand shoulder of the ridge at an altitude of 10,200 ft.
Here I am with my rental bike. Most of my gear is in the saddle bag and handlebar bag. I did carry a backpack but I tried to keep only water and my rain gear in that to reduce the amount of weight I was carrying on me!
This is Heike dropping down some slickrock on our final day of riding.
This is a dinosaur track (and Timmy's hand).
