Props for Steve Farson

I gave two copies of Steve Farson's book, "Motorcyling Colorado", to some friends as gifts and just got a note from one:

Nils,
I didn't mention it in the FB post, but I rode a bunch of routes, or parts of them, from the book you sent. They were AWESOME! The route around Crested Butte was by far the best of the best. So glad I brought the book along.
Thanks,
Allan
I can't wait to sample it myself, especially after reading the trip report threads from the recent rally. My own copy is sitting on the coffee table at this very moment, taunting me...

That's a timeless video...
Reminds me I need to get over to Escalante soon. But, there have been storms and some flash flooding lately.

Thanks for the link, I just ordered my copy. I got a real kick out of Steve's "Then and Now" photos and can't wait to see what interesting things he has in the book.

I'm planning a week+ of riding in CO next year. I want to include the annual 100,000' ride and whatever else I can reasonably work in.
