Well, just to have another thread here. From a couple of days ago, riding two mountain passes to a special picnic spot. Yeah, I kinda like munchin away outside, sitting in the sun, reading something, bike parked nearby.

Anyway, here's the tale through pics, along with a vid while at the picnic table. A few of the pics are HDR (High Dynamic Range), where I captured the MV at three different bracketed exposures and merged them. Also, the sunlight shining through gaps in moisture laden clouds helped with the lighting and setting!

A pause at Squaw Pass with the Continental Divide in the distance. On this side of the peaks the snow will melt towards the Atlantic. On the other side, the Pacific...


A couple of miles later at Juniper Pass (11,043ft. elev.) This is a twisting, climbing, scenic ride the scenic F4 thrills to be turned loose on...


At another angle...


OK, a descent is made to 10,600ft. and Echo Lake, with the sister sentinels of Mt. Evans standing guard to the south...


Allrighty! Time for lunch. Sure was a challenge finding a parking spot at the Ponder Point picnic area. The mountain road nicely wraps around its location...


The view from the penthouse picnic table towards the bike...


The view of the wrapping road from where I sit. Not a bad thing to lift the eyeballs off the newspaper for...


Now, while I'm "setting the table" I hear two sportbikes howling up the climb. I turn on the video mode of the digital camera and record 50 sec...

Ahh yes, I can sit here a spell...

Jeff... The cam was a Canon Powershot SX 260 HS. It's a really robust point and shoot. I value taking a camera I can fit in the jacket pocket.


sqd8r... How are you liking your S1000RR? And FWIW, I was hit by rain on this ride. But the clouds did add to the mood of the pics!
