Monarch Crest Trail 8/31/09

Well I finally got out for this ride the other day. I wanted to get it last year but we had an early storm and couldn’t get it done. Flew solo so there aren’t any action pics. In fact there aren’t many pics at all, I was just having to much fun to stop. I did the classic route starting at Monarch Pass and riding the Divide Trail to Silver Creek then on to the Rainbow Trail and back to Poncha Springs. The route finding was super easy.

I was kind of toying with the idea of adding in Green Creek but it didn’t seem like the weather was going to hold up for an extra 3-4 hours. SO FUN. Ride this if you get the chance
