I rode out of Colorado the other day....was staying around Dillon area, very nice. Had a great condo for $42 a night on AirBnB.

Loved the area..but now am in Jackson Hole, Wyoming...will go North through the parks and exit the North side...then..??? Depending on the weather...eventually I will end up on the coast and ride down the coast and back to Phoenix around the end of September.

I tried out a cheapo action camera...you get what you pay for. I'm going to buy me a GoPro today.

I'll consider staying in Colorado next year at least a month or more to escape this heat.

The Memorial Rock is the one they left there, there was another. Two giant rocks came down. The one right in the middle of what used to be blacktop was blown up. They actually built a dirt ramp up to the top of that rock to get a drilling truck up on it. They drilled about 15 holes, filled em with explosives, and let em off. It left no rocks bigger than a large trash can. The hiway dept then routed the new road slightly around the remaining rock. If anyone takes that route, from Dolores to Telluride over Lizard Head Pass (a favorite route of mine), stop at the little town of Rico at the Enterprise Bar & Grill. Best hamburgers in Colorado, and the rest of the menu is great. Also notice just down below Rico you will cross Scotch Creek. It flows single malt Jan-Mar, blended the rest of the year.

Update 8.23.2019

Out of Colorado and up to Yellowstone National Park a few day....got that GoPro Hero 7 Black. Much better everything, camera, software etc...absolutely 1000% better. I'll see if I can post a video I made 1 minute long..still learning software.

Road through about half of Montana and ended up in Spokane Wa. Storm approaching, not big so...I took a 3 day break.

Flew to Phoenix..left bike at dealer to get some switches unstuck so I can have my reverse and sounds (mute was stuck on).

Just brainstorming and looking for tips from those who've been there done that...........

Go from Spokane to Seattle over a few days......gotta be a scenic way to get from Spokane to Seattle over them little mountains right?

Then Seattle to San Diego?? along the coast....no hurry, no schedule...

I may take the bike somewhere in Seattle and upgrade my two speakers and ad an amp to boast them...any recommendations? I tried Sena headset...wouldn't play loud enough...tried using my Airbuds...uncomfortable and clumsy. Going back to the bikes speakers which I have rarely used. Any suggestions for speakers?

TIA, flying to Spokane tomorrow to resume the adventure!
