For the last week in July, Bek and I went to Silverton, CO to camp and ride the Alpine Loop. In the 5 days out in the mountain range, we experienced a ton of rain, other riders, and of course BEAUTIFUL VIEWS. For anyone who can take this trip, it is definitely a trip to plan for. You will find videos and photos from the trip in the blog. I want to take time to offer information and guidance as this is a trip that almost everyone can enjoy. If you have not heard of this please see the links:

While this is a beautiful area, there are a lot of challenging trails that can cause injury and fatality. Not to sound gloomy, but this is a back country experience that requires the proper maintained equipment, wet/cold gear, water, survival equipment, helmets, and planning. I will provide a list of equipment that was used (primary) and even some reviews of the equipment. All the blogs related will have the same intro title with the extended topic listed. Please feel free to ask questions, post comments, and share if you have experienced this part of Colorado.
