Winter Is Slowly Arriving
I think winter has finally arrived. We received about 4.5 inches a week ago with more snow on the way. Nonetheless, I've put in some good autumn rides. Better yet, I'm still in shorts, but probably not for long. Following are some pics from an afternoon ride up Waterton Canyon. Enjoy!
Waterton Canyon is deep and narrow; even with warmish temps the snow sticks around.
The Colorado Trail is the end of the line for the day.
I wasn't dressed for riding in the snow.
It was time to chase some sun.
The road looks harmless enough. I'm looking down a steep incline just below the Colorado Trail that becomes icier with the season. A number of people have not had good days here. I'm aware of several broken bones, including a broken hip – ouch!

That's it for now. On the docket is a gravely road kind of ride.
