Two classics, one weekend
The plan was to do the MTBR gathering, and while we (Chris and Chad from Lyons)camped and campfired with the crew, we made out own decisions regarding riding. Saturday, the classic Monarch Crest route. Starts at Monarch Pass, heads southish on the Continental Divide/Colorado Trail. I was worried about hypothermia and trying to stay on the trail with with a 30 degree temperature and 30 mph winds. I hear the views are spectacular, but we were socked in pretty good. Eventually, we hung a right onto the Silver Creek trail, the sun came out, and it warmed to a balmy 50 degrees. Six plus hours on the trail. My first time up there, and it was super yummy.

Sunday we stopped halfway home and hit Kenosha Pass. Another chilly one, 40 degrees, and another stiff breeze. Lots of tired legs (some more than others, mine especially), but oh so worth it. Another big day, above treeling at the halfway, and ultra sweet descents. Super yummy yet again. And only fiveish hours.
