2014 Motorcycle Vacation COBDR Ride - Photos by Miles Waite

These are the photos and videos from my Epic (at least to me) 2014 motorcycle vacation. The plan was to ride from Denver, CO to the 4 corners area, South West corner of the state. Then start the COBDR (Colorado Backcountry Discovery Route) and take that up to Wyoming. The COBDR is primarily a dirt road route. I started out by spending about 3 days riding down to the 4 corners of Colorado. I got a little distracted, and also decided to get there via the most scenic roads I could find. These included, The Rampart Range road, Independence pass, HW 133 south of Carbondale, HW 92 The Black Canyon, HW 550 south of Ridgway "The Million Dollar Highway" to Durango. The COBDR its self covers some incredible area. Down south you are near Ouray, Silverton, and Telluride. Could spend a month just exploring down there. Went over Ophir, Corkscrew, Hurricane, California, and Cinnamon passes. Moving north east Los Pinos, Cumberland, and Cottonwood, Hangerman passes were next. Passed through a number of small cool towns. Encountered sand (dumped it) and miles of almost single track on the way to Leadville. Did I mention mud? I may have gone a little late in the season but there was a bit of mud. When the sign says "Impassible when wet" yep they mean it. North of Gypsum the terrain flattened out some, moved into more of a high desert, and followed the Colorado River North to Steamboat Springs. From there it was the last fairly easy push north to Wyoming. All in all an incredible ride. The scenery was great. You could stop every couple of miles just because of the scenery.
