On Saturday morning we were on a deserted 2 lane road coming out of Gunnison Canyon, Colorado and what do we spy coming toward us, but cattle as far as we can see, coming down the road toward us. We pulled to the shoulder and sat on our bikes for about 1/2 hour while this 2 mile long 4-5 abreast cattle drive bumps and brays its way past us. (the moms and calves seemed upset by our presence, but the young bulls looked us over to see if we wanted to fight). There were authentic cowboys riding herd on this rabble...pretty cool.
And when the last cow had finally passed and we started back up., I busted out laughing...I have never seen a road that was more defiled; despoiled; besmerched. It was a wreck... Most of the cows seemed to have had lime green diarrhea,...non stop; and their bladders looked like they held 5 gallons each, but we slipped and spun for miles...Bikes looked pretty 'original' too.
