Mainly south and east of the Denver metro. In Boulder/Larimer County we have had very little to speak of so far. Hoping to pick some more up tonight...

I don't mind at all, just so long as it lets up tomorrow when I get off work.

Only good news is maybe they will lift the fire ban for campers.
I've been waiting for a deluge to see how well last fall's trail work holds up.

There hasn't been much moisture down here, but it's been raining quite a bit to the west. I was up on Sourdough on the 4th. Peaceful Valley was still super tacky from all the rain. Parts of the 'dough south of Brainard Lake road had standing water and fresh snow from the night before. The forest actually looked lush!

I just moved here and it's rained everyday since I got here! If Colorado is suppose to average 300 days of sun a year I think it will be 300 consecutive days after this rain lets up! :D

We got nearly 5 INCHES of rain last night! A good section of highway 115 is completely gone about 10 miles south of my place.

I did hear on the radio this morning that the National Forest Service plans to lift the campfire ban in a day or two.

I'm stoked to see it! Although, I didn't even bother to pack my bike today since I'm betting on rain tonight. Next Thursday maybe?

I'm curious to see how the Park is holding up. Joe, Vince and I rode on the 4th and things generally looked pretty good. However, now that the ground is saturated, there will probably be more erosion problems. Loudpawlz, what do we need to get an after work work group going again? As we mentioned, I would be happy to play tool jockey.

After the last couple days I would have to agree, I may take the boy's on a hike today and see what I can find, will keep you posted.
Up north in my area it has been a steady rain every evening but the hard rains have stayed away, great for or northern rides as the area is mostly DG.
Could be clear for a ride on Saturday as well, maybe shuttle rroeder, multiples.

I like the rain. Keeps the "Sally's" at home.

Rain ?? What's that ??

Here in Ft.Collins we got a light sprinkle this afternoon, the first I've seen in weeks. We've gotten 1.22" total since the beginning of April. Trails here are bottomless dust and there isn't a green blade of grass anywhere.

Never complain about too much rain. You will be begging for it again late July and August.
That's when the monsoon flow really kicks in. Things will not dry out until late August/early September at the earliest I predict although I hope I'm wrong. Early June is just a happy memory right now.

Help?

Does anyone know if Keystone will be rideable Sunday? I have not been there and don't know what the conditions would be like when wet.

Jeez. How do you guys ride in Colorado if you don't ride in the rain? I always have raingear in my CamelBak up here on the Western Slope.

My friend was just whining about the rain. I said, "Have fun whining about the rain while I am having a great ride!" Hehe.
