Red Cone is rocky and High altitude. It usually has snow until July! Didnt see any snow in your pics. Where else did you ride in Colorado? My trip was the end of August.. It snowed (flurried) on us while we were up there, but no sticking snow. I only rode two days while I was there for the week. My fiance and I drove out, so the vacation wasn't a "dirt bike" vacation. I had to do things with her too. We also rode on some of the trails in the Pike national forest on the second day. More rocks, loose rocks, etc.... I always enjoy the scenery out there, but I really like riding on dirt a lot better than rocks. A friend of mine and I are considering doing a portion of the Trans America trail next summer though. M.
