Salida to Breckenridge

Camped behind a fire station last night, so no chance to put up any. After 12 miles of climbing out from Salida yesterday,I made about 80 miles across dry basin country. Today I got up at 5 rolled up my stuff and rode 3 chilly miles to Como for a hot breakfast. Not to be. Restaurant was closed for the week, so I cooked freeze-dried eggs (nasty) and coffee and got on the road. No surprise, 12 miles of climbing to Boreas pass. Made that, swooped down the 9 miles to Breckenridge, and got a burger and an Avalanche Ale here at the brewery. A little wifi time and I'm heading for Silverthorne. Here's pics.

from the road.


  1. I am sooo jealous. This looks like an absolute blast.

  2. New favorite pic is the self portrait at Boreus Pass!

  3. Gorgeous pics and stellar riding Dave! I'm also jealous. ;)
