Well I’m back, after spending four spectacularly glorious weeks, free-as-a bird tooling along some of America’s best scenic drives. The roads I drove were twisty, hairpin, switchbacks, made from Portland concrete, asphalt, dirt and gravel, ranging from 2,000 feet to 12,980 feet elevation without guardrails.

Here's my intinerary:

1. Kansas City, MO for the 1st National Solstice Meet

2. Boulder, Colorado for a trip through the Rocky Mountain National Park with a sidewinder into Denver for the band Hot Tuna. - pics -posted
3. Jackson Hole, Wyoming for the Grand Tetons - pics- -posted

Colorado

























Don't know why the pics are coming out different sizes. They're all resized to 900. I found a lot of "SOL" signs and of course, I had to take pictures of them. :lol:

Ah, one of my favorite spots in this country-too bad Longs is obscured by clouds-I hope you got to see the Front Range sans clouds :)

Sun broke for a little while but we were out of there by 6pm. It was magnificent and it certainly helped me deal with my fear of heights.
Smoking clutch on the way down, tho. :lol:

Great pics Solli. Looks like you had the same weather in the Rocky Mountain National Park that Brenda and I had the last week in June. Still a beautiful place. Thanks for sharing the pics. :cool:
