Generally good. No construction. Once past the farms in Loma, straights and sweepers take you into the mountains where sweepers and tighter corners are found. Out of the mountains more straights and sweepers. All corners are well marked with no suprises.

Here is a listing of that road with photos and report:






Hunted Deer on the top of Douglas Pass back in '73. Had Venison burgers in the back room of a bar and grill in Rangely... The only place open that late at night....

Just bought a rifle from a fellow in Fruita last year. Lots of 139 memories of the area... Thanks for the new post on an old report.... :thumbsup2:
