Imagine touring eight days through some of the wildest most magnificent landscape on the planet. This tour provides an extra free day for exploration and just plain fun on your own. Spend the day anyway you want. Ride over fifteen mountain passes including the most scenic in Colorado. Visit the colorful rim rock plateau of the Colorado National Monument and the incredible gorge of the Black Canyon of the Gunnison. You will visit the town where Butch Cassidy robbed his first bank in 1889. You will see white-water rivers, endless mountain views, abandoned mining relics, and travel through fantastic canyons carved into arid desert terrain. Traverse the "Million Dollar Highway" over Red Mountain Pass, called the most scenic ride in North America and featured in the best selling travel book, "1,000 Places to See Before you Die". This tour will go from a mere mile high to over 11,000 feet and traverse the high mountain valley of South Park. Keep your eyes peeled for roaming coyotes, antelope, buffalo and bald eagles soaring overhead. This is a ride you soon will not forget.
