Most of this route was new to me. I was taking in the awesome scenery and really enjoying the riding.

Loved the ride over this pass! Rocky with a few steep inclines. Just enough to keep you interested. And the the views! Spectacular!

Proof that @2StrokeDan can take a pic with a iPhone....... I'll just leave out the bit about me having to crop the photo to remove his gloved finger from the top left corner of the image......
