Jefe’s Colorado Motorcycle Ride – Part 2

On this 3000 mile ride, nearly half of it was on near-empty, excellently surfaced roads like this with views that just took your breath away. Fortunately motorcycle helmets are not air tight and replacement air was available.

Breathtaking Scenery - Colorado Motorcycle Ride

My wife wants nothing to do with motorcycles which over time I have come to regard as a good thing as it gives us both some good alone time while I embark on these journeys. She did fly in to meet me in Colorado Springs to visit some friends and relatives, however. This is the Garden of the Gods, a free access series of hiking trails through these incredible sandstone monuments.

Pike’s Peak, which has been climbed by a million racers, but never by Zebulon Pike, after whom it is named, dominates the view everywhere in Colorado Springs. This view is from the Garden of the Gods.

Pike's Peak - Colorado Motorcycle Ride

Today’s Rockies are actually the third generation of these mountains. Two previous mountain ranges were thrust up hundreds of millions of years earlier and then slowly eroded to near flat before today’s generation popped up. Think how long that took! Between mountain range generations, huge inland seas covered the area and most of today’s plateau’s and canyons were carved through the sediment that floated down to the bottom of those seas over millions of years and solidified to rock.
