Part 1: No Name Trail
Glenwood Canyon was cut by the mighty Colorado River. Years ago there was a town of "No Name", which is now a rest stop.
In Spaghetti Westerns there was a man with no name.
About 2 miles from my house is a beautiful trail that has no trailhead sign, no trail markings and no name. Best of all, the trail has very little foot traffic and no bike traffic. Although a few parts of the trail are overgrown, the majority of the trail is in excellent shape.
The trail is also very pretty.
Here is my Canfield Nimble 9 beside a pristine little creek that also has no name. You may also notice that the Aspen trees have started to bud. However, few trees are fully leafed-out.
Here is a shot of Big Nimby further up the trail. The trial winds up a mountain that has no name. The trial drops into a valley that has no name - and climbs up a second peak that has no name.
Here is a "beauty shot" of my Nimble 9. This bike is unique because of a very short wheel base and very slack steering. I haven't learned to ride this bike to it's full potential yet.
Part 2: Endless Trail
I rode for over two hours up the trail at about 9 mph. After riding 20 miles, I still did not find the end of the trail. There are several offshoots from the main trail that are slightly overgrown. This trail is not even on any maps.
I think it may be a fire access trail. I rode this trail on Saturday, May 31st, and the weather was great! We have been getting a lot of rain, which has put a crimp in my outdoor activity. I mentioned previously that I can handle rain - but mountain lightning is really scary!
This is a typical mountain lightning. During a lightning storm you get off peaks and ridges. Unfortunately, lightning in the mountains tends to strike without warning. But so do squirrels!
This is a Abert's Squirrel. This fellow is named Squirrelzilla!
I like where I live. Thanks for reading my blog.
