Graham Ranch to Gateway | 32.2 miles | 8,300 ft to 4,560 ft
This was one of our better days. We found some great alternate routes including the Elm Creek Trail - which was a good enough track to justify a special trip just to ride again. After climbing out of Elm Creek we a few miles of nice relatively flat gravel riding and then finished with a 3,000 ft descent into Gateway.
We made a stop in town & found a bar at the resort - chowed on junk food & mixed drinks. Then stopped at the gas station for ice (for the beer) and spent the evening on the banks of the Delores river. A great day & great night.
