Jean & Skip had taken me about 1/2 up this Mountain Road when I first got here – that’s where we saw those Bighorn Sheep. I wanted to go back and ride that Mountain on the bike.
This is a very popular motorcycle ride especially for those sports bike crowd who take those curves practically on their sides scraping their knees ! Not this OLD rider !! haha
It reminded me a lot of riding THE DRAGON except this road is all uphill – or downhill as the case may be.
I reached the top just past a little community called Ranchita which is at an elevation of 4,065’ and it was COLD and very, very windy.
Riding up this mountain, with its many twists, curves and completely blind corners, you have to stay focused – very focused !!! No picture taking while riding I can assure you.
So I got these few pics from the Internet to give you somewhat of an idea….
This is the end point where I had to make a decision on which way to go…
The other option was to go back down the Mountain – which was the one I chose.
This is the only picture I took – from the safety of being OFF the bike.
It was a great little ride and I’m glad I did it – BUT it certainly wasn’t a relaxing one so won’t be doing it again.
