Thanks Hondo! You can get the original off my smugmug page.
I had a good weekend of riding and camping with the little two fiddy. Went up to Utah where I did bird surveys one summer a long time ago and had never been back. Then came back and camped above Ouray and did Black Bear and Imogene this morning.
The KLX won't pull me up the steepest parts of Imogene in first gear. Stalling like that sucks immensely.
Here are some assorted pictures:

This was "home" one summer in grad school, love the new no ATV sign
Rode some ATV trails that were very challenging:
It was a soggy night above Ouray last night:

Black Bear is easy, except for this one little part:

oopsy. Stalling sucks:
Imogene sucked for me today. My head wasn't "in the game", it was super windy and cold and I was having terrible target fixation. I probably would have had more fun if I had stopped for a coffee and snack in Telluride, but I motored right through.
Coming off Imogene, steep never ending descent with no good line:
