It’s been a while; how’s everyone doing? Busy summer! Here are some photos from our 7-day mountain bike trip through the San Juans. Alpine, canyon, desert, mud and slickrock – and a variety of weather including hot hot days, hail and lightning! Scorpions, lizards, tarantulas. 7 flats amongst us; watch out for those cactus.
Riders: Will, Darcy, Alfieri, Alex, Kelly, and me, and shared the huts with our friends riding independently, Mark and Rob. Trip of a lifetime. Highly recommend.
Check out the San Juan hut system for route ideas. Each of the huts were in the most incredible locations with fantastic vistas, and the pantries are well stocked. Just ask Alex how to get through 350km on Coke, chicken, bacon, and eggs.
We sandwiched our trip with visits to Mesa Verde NP, Canyonlands NP, and Arches NP.
