All of the photos from the may photo contest got me thinking about riding trips... after all of the trips, one from back in 03 keeps coming back to me. Silverton sticks in my mind as the most memorable spot to ride. Nothing but ride open spaces and the occasional quad or jeep driving by... great place. And since I can't sleep, I thought I would post a few shots from the trip...

Those are great pics, I love the riding in Colorado. Let me know if you are ever back in Co.

I've been trying to get back there for a while. It's a trip I've been planning but unable to put together for the past 4 years. I only spent a day riding the last (and only) time I was there but next time around I'm planning (hoping) to get a cabin on Lake San Cristobal (map Alpine Loop National Back Country Byway - Maps & Directions ) and use that as a base camp for a few days or riding.

I didn't make it out to Ouray :mad:. The trip was plagued with mechanical problems on the quad and my truck that limited the time I could spend riding. I've seen pictures of Ouray and "little Switzerland" fits. I would take it one further and call it Litter Zermatt. I wish I could have made it to Ouray to see it for myself. That's just more reason for me to try and go back... if I could coerce my friends into taking a road trip :skeptic:

I spent some time in Zermatt Switzerland back in 2004... both small towns tucked between massive mountain ranges with narrow passes:

      Hey everyone!
      Ya'll have been so great and welcoming to our new Ambassador program, we wanted to be sure that Quad Crazy was getting info directly from us about the Stay The Trail educational program too.
      The program was started in 2003 with the purpose of educating the public about responsible trail use and fostering a sense of stewardship among OHV enthusiasts.
      The "Where To Go" section of our website is another great resource for anyone looking for trail info. We host all of the Motor Vehicle Use Maps (MVUM) and overlay them on the Google mapping system. We want this site to be the place you go to for trail maps as you plan a run. The MVUM maps show what trails are open for what types of vehicles. If a trail is not on these maps, it is not an open trail.
      We attend events and set up at trailheads throughout the season to ensure that folks are getting the info and education they need to be responsible on public trails. We have posters and brochures that quickly review these guidelines (all of the Etiquette info can also be found on the website).

      Very soon, we will have a HUGE announcement about mobile mapping options!
      Sam and Matt are going to be around on the forum, keeping everyone updated on what is new with the program and answering questions. Feel free to ask us any questions!
      Oh – and don’t forget to follow us on FACEBOOK!

      Hey every one im from Grand Junction, Co and I just got a 1998 Polaris Trailblazer 250 the otherday for Free! The guy swapped the motor and trans out of a 1994 Sportsman 400 in it. It needs some work though. He said he was riding it one day and it just died. He just towed it home and bought a new one. Im pretty sure its not the piston because it has about 90psi of compression. Iv heard they have carb problems that makes them not start, i took it apart and cleaned it but havent tried starting it yet. If anyone has suggestions let me know
