2009 Great Western Adventure - 2009greatwesternadventure

Featured pictures

Welcome

To my crazy motorcycle ride West.   I rode to Colorado to see my sister then headed North to Wyoming, Montana and into Canada then back into the the US via Vermont.  Right now I"m in Yellowstone, WY so there aren't too many pictures yet.  I'll be adding more as I go.

I haven't completely figured out my camera.  Just realized there is a landscape setting.  Sorry some of the colors are washed out.  You'll have to take my word for how beautiful everything is.

Glacier National Park is glorious

Wow, Glacier is really impressive but in a different way than the Beartooth Pass.  On the Beartooth you ride up into the mountains and are at altitude for most of the ride.  In Glacier, entering from the West you are at the base of the mountains and they tower above you.  On Beartooth you didn't really see the mountain in it's entirety until you had ridden passed and looked back.  In Glacier the mountains are all around you.

I took as many pictures as I could. Like Yellowstone and Beartooth they were doing construction on the roads and for some stretches you are escorted and can't stop.  Unfortunately, some of the most impressive views were under these conditions.  I did sneek a video while I was riding.

Playgrounds of the Gods

It is easy to understand why early cultures believed God, or The Gods, lived in the mountains.  I spent an entire day riding through Yellowstone.  It is an amazing place.  I added some photos and videos from that ride.  I have also videoed the entire ride using a camera attached to the bike.

After Yellowstone I rode to Cooke City, MT and stayed the night in a town that looked like it was out of the 1800s, there's a picture of 'Main Street' all 400 yards of it.  No cell services, or internet.  Yesterday, Wednesday, July 8th I was up early and rode the Beartooth Pass.  I have never seen any place that was so beautiful, the majesty of the mountains and high meadows was incredible.  If the Garden of the Gods is in Colorado Springs then Beartooth Pass is their playground.  I also videoed the 63 mile ride through the pass.

Today, July 9th, I'm just outside Glacier National Park in Columbia Falls, MT.  Early tomorrow morning I'm going to ride through Glacier.  I'm told it is the most beautiful place.  I'll take pictures and videos and I'll video the ride.  I won't be able to post the ride videos until I get back.
