48.3 miles of mixed gravel and pavement.  Approximately 3,000 feet of elevation gain.  The route was scouted on Sunday, September 17th and we had a great time.

There is a porta-potty along the route at about mile 20.  Someone said something about a rest stop/refreshment brake at mile 25....

The aspen and cottonwood trees should be about peak; the mixed brush will be a fiery complement.

I know it's two dimensional! Soon coming to you so you can upload it to your phone.....
