Ouray Colorado
 
I went to Ouray with some fellow WFer's and here are some pics that I took.
they cover several areas including Black Bear Pass and Poskegee gulch. among many others.
this plaace was flat out amazing. I had a great time with a great group and couldn't have asked for a better time.

WOW, Colorado is a beautiful place. That switchback would have gotten me in trouble with the wife. LOL NIce pics, makes me want to get back there soon. Thanks

Colo-TJ 07-31-2012 12:09 PM

We had a blast. that switchback was on Black Bear Pass...one of 6. the steps at the beginning are even worse. had a great time up there.

Ageless Stranger 07-31-2012 04:53 PM

Thanks for the pics. Very nice! :thumb: Can't wait to get out there in a few weeks.

Colo-TJ 07-31-2012 06:29 PM

your gonna love it!!!!!! I wish I could take some more time off to join you. I'd love to go back.

Ageless Stranger 07-31-2012 06:38 PM

I'll give you a yell before I head out just to make sure you can't make it.

Sottyman 07-31-2012 08:35 PM

I had to move from CO back to AL a few months back (job stuff). There isn't a day that goes by that I don't miss it dearly. Maybe I'll be able to join you/you guys in the not so distant future. I just gotta pay my dues and get my ass back out to my Rocky Mountains! Have some fun for me!

Thanks a million for the pictures. I lived in Cortez and Durango, Colorado and Blanding, Utah in the mid fifties. The pictures take me back to my childhood. I learned how to drive on a dodge Power Wagon in the area. My Dad was in the oil business. I just love the four corners area. Thanks again for the pictures.

Colo-TJ 07-31-2012 10:50 PM

I am glad that I am able to share them with you.... The San Juan's are simply Amazing!!
Scotty..you have to do something about that..LOL

topher38 08-01-2012 12:30 PM

I will have to get my pictures up soon. But I still have about 500 to go through...

steps on Black Bear
 
The "steps" are the only place where I put finger prints in the steering wheel and my wife yelled obscenities at me

Colo-TJ 08-02-2012 07:52 PM

What are the dates for that Jamboree? I remember checking for conflict with my trip, and it was clear, but wanted to double check.

I'll be doing BBR and Immogene on the 17th. The 19th is Wednesday. That's a strange day to start a Jamboree. Anyway, looks like I'll barely miss them. :thumb:

ok. So on my East to West Tour. I have several places to visit with the TJ, of course MOAB, the Valley of The Gods, Grand Canyon, adding this ride to it. thats pretty cool stuff. can it be done alone or you wouldnt recommend it? snow in october? probably? thanks for the pics.
i saw the entire album thats amazing.

Colo-TJ 08-04-2012 02:20 PM

you would be ok alone....I wouldnt do Black Bear or Pougeskee gulch alone but everytthing else is good.
could snow in October but it would probably still be ok.
I'm glad you enjoyed the pics,
Happy Trails
Chad
