Too many pics

The complete set of pics are at http://patfreeman.org/tat/, but here are some good ones.

Illinois…

Kentucky…

imgp0222

Tennessee…

I didn’t have any good pictures.

Mississippi…

The sign for this road said “MISS LEVEE.” The Mississippi river is off to the right of this image.

imgp0231

Arkansas…

I started the TAT. The gravel turned to mud

imgp0245

imgp0246

imgp0247

The National Forest roads were probably the best roads.

imgp0266

imgp0275

Glad this tree wasn’t any worse. I was almost 20 miles from the nearest interseciton. I was able to get under it where my bike is.

imgp0286

This was probably the best road on the trip. It was the most technical road I have ever been on. Warloop Rd. Totally awesome.

imgp0289

imgp0290

imgp0291

Stupid nut.

imgp0295

A half freshly graded road. That little berm of dirt on the right was tough to cross when a car approached.

imgp0297

Oklahoma…

Riding with fellow TAT travelers.

imgp0308

A beautiful river in Oklahoma. The film on top looked delicious.

imgp0324

It looks like there might be an erosion problem here.

imgp0326

Another cattle ranch. I probably rode through hundreds of ranches in Oklahoma, New Mexico and Colorado.

imgp0338

The two turns in the middle of Oklahoma’s farm land. The shade was nice on this day because the temp was over 100.

imgp0342

New Mexico…

imgp0365

imgp0366

imgp0369

imgp0371

Colorado…

imgp0383

imgp0387

Mmmmm… Fresh rubber.

imgp0394

I needed it for the mud I was riding in that day.

imgp0395

imgp0406

imgp0409

imgp0418

Heading up to Hancock Pass.

imgp0447

The road to Hancock Pass.

imgp0450

imgp0452

Snow.

imgp0453

imgp0455

imgp0456

I failed to make it through. I got stuck for about 10 minutes.

imgp0460

Once I got through a couple more snow banks the road was completely covered in snow. You can see a little bit of the road in the bottom right of this pic.

imgp0462

Re-route to a pass that was plowed. It was only about 50 miles away.

imgp0470

I tried to go back around to the other side of Hancock Pass. The road was basically an ATV trail.

imgp0478

… that was eventually closed.

imgp0480

This is the Old Stage Coach Route. It was a lot of fun.

imgp0487

imgp0490

imgp0495

On the road to Cinnamon Pass.

imgp0528

imgp0529

A window view from a house in the ghost town of Animas Forks.

imgp0538

California Pass.

imgp0564

A view from the top.

imgp0569

This one lane road had 12 ft tall snow banks on either side.

imgp0588

imgp0590

imgp0593

imgp0597

Another freshly graded National Forest road.

imgp0613

imgp0616

Utah…

imgp0631

imgp0633

imgp0637

The trail I decided to take in the Sand Flats Recreation Area.

imgp0651

And the rock.

imgp0661

imgp0662

It hurt to take those last two pics.

    Wow, Lots of really great pics in there! I’m a little confused, though. Are you saying that that rock was the thing you were trying to ride when you hurt your foot? Insane!

    WOW!
