    I needed a distraction at work today, so I thought I'd hit google earth and list out the roads I want to "visit" this year on the VFR. These are in no certain order, as they ALL look like they will put a smile on my face:

    1. Hwy 119 from Boulder to Blackhawk
    2. Hwy 72 from Denver to Estes Park
    3. Mt. Evans Rd
    4. Guanella Pass from Grant to Georgetown
    5. 34 from Estes Park to Granby
    6. 40 from Granby down to I-70 (Lawson)
    7. 82 from Aspen to Twin Lakes (Independence Pass)
    8. 149 from Gunnison down through Lake City and on to Creede (Looks AMAZING!!)
    9. 160 from Del Norte to Durango
    10. 550 from Durango into Ouray (Million dollar Highway)
    11. 92 from Gunnison into Hotchkiss (Black Canyon) **MUST DO
    12. Hwy 50 from Canyon City to Salida

    What did I leave out? Also, many of these roads can be put together in nice routes, whether it be a half day, full day, or 2 day ride.

    Comments? Remarks? Snide Suggestions?

    Thanks for the list lgrok.
    I’ll have to check them out when I get my bike out there.
    Think the only one on the list was 72 to Blackhawk, what a beautiful road for bikes.
