countdown to winter... 10.24.16 update

McCoy 10.23.16  
We explored the not-so-famous McCoy recently.  
Above average temps are keeping us on the dirt scooters rather than the snow kind...   But, we expect the Colorado fall will come storming in....we're just not sure month that will be.      photo mccoy2 1 of 1_zps6yjb8vgh.jpg  photo mccoy 1 of 1_zps32jilktj.jpg  photo mccoyjoe 1 of 1_zpsnpjeq4ke.jpg
