road bike: huntington canyon and scofield

The campgrounds in Huntington Canyon itself are still closed this year due to the fires last summer, so we'll camp up top again in Flat Canyon campground where we camped last year.-----We'll camp Friday and Saturday nights. Saturday, we can ride in the area between the upper end of Electric Lake and the top of Huntington Canyon starting from our campground where the best scenery is. Another option is to drive to the lower part of Huntington Canyon, then ride up to the summit and back down-also a very good ride.-----Sunday morning we'll pack up and head for home via the Energy Loop scenic byway, stopping to ride part of it between Highway 6 and Scofield, with a leg up to the charming little mining town of Clear Creek (optional, but really a must do-it's just too good to miss).-----Contact Robert for more details and to register.-----NOTICE: My brother and his two children (ages 12 and 8) who joined us last year will join us again this year. They will just camp and eat meals with us; they will do their own thing during the day. We may have a friendly dog (or two, maybe three) along, too, that will be kept on leash in the campground. I'll update this re the dog(s) when I know for sure.
