Gary's Arizona Trail Trip

My pal Gary Blakley recently spent about a week bikepacking on the Arizona Trail. You can read about it here and see pictures here.

Gary lives in the little town of Del Norte, Colorado and he's got awesome country right out his backdoor. He makes the following observation contrasting Arizona and Colorado:

"In Arizona you climb up into the trees, in Colorado you climb up out of the trees. One thing about living in Colorado is that I have learned to love climbing. It's not the climbing itself that's so rewarding but the dividend it pays; the views and the ability to go somewhere new and the feeling of accomplishment."

Thanks for the ride story, Gary.
