Biking Buena Vista to Granite, 17 miles one way

April 27, 2006 - This is a dorky photo of me, but that's me riding out of Buena Vista. These are photos of my ride. Happy cycling!
Midland Hill, Colorado My first scenery photo was taken from Chaffee County Road 306 as I biked east toward the center of Buena Vista.
It's a slow uphill all the way to Granite. At least the mountain scenery is nice. :)
An old railroad bridge that crosses the Arkansas River.

Photos in this area:
  • Clear Creek Reservoir
  • "Colorado Mountain"
  • Chaffee County Walk Day #1
  • Lost Canyon Road
  • Granite Hike
  • Scenic Mountain Point
  • Bighorn Sheep Sign There's plenty of bighorn sheep and wildlife in this area.

    Approaching Granite, I got this shot of Mount Elbert, a 14er.
    Granite General Store I stopped at the Granite General Store to say "hi" and buy an extra bottle of Gatorade. Granite is a small town; the last I heard, the town has a population of nine.
    On the way back, I snapped a shot of an unknown mountain.

    Mount Princeton

    I sped back to Buena Vista, being that it was downhill much of the way. I did stop once to capture this photo of Mount Princeton.
