Ouray Adventure Ride Day #3

Click on the Map for a Full View of the Trip.

Day three in Ouray found us lazy, tired....not wanting to get in a hurry. I headed back out to main street for fresh coffee and a Rocky Mountain Breakfast Sandwich, which I brought back to Audra for breakfast in bed.

Finally, we packed up the bike and headed out of Ouray, riding up HWY 50, the Million Dollar Highway.

Rolled the bike over 20k miles on this trip

All said, it was an outstanding trip. In three days we totaled 915 miles on the bike and experienced some amazing sights. The highlights were Ouray, the Uncompahgre Wilderness and Black Canyon.
