Nick and I met at Sandstone Park in Lyons. It was busy on a nice Sunday.
Heading up the canyon there were several sets of bicyclists - fortunately they were doing a decent job of keeping right-of-the-white. There were two state patrol cars on the side, coming down, with a pickup pulled over. Odd to see police in the canyon. There was one Lyons local officer with radar looking at people (us) heading out of Lyons in the 25mph zone.
We had discussed running Bunce north to south as I had thoughts to "finish up" Park Creek. In the end, that didn't happen. We came to the Ironclads turn off and decided to run the 3/4 mile to the first obstacle. With it easily dispatched we again decided to change plans and decided to complete the loop - looking for a more difficult counterclockwise route. At the first intersection we went to the ledge and each did and up/down. Around the loop, the "back side" uphill posed a small bit of difficulty, which was enjoyed. At the top we made the trek to the top for some views. On the way back to the trucks the rain started. It continued a decent rain, with some sleet / small pea hail down to the ledge. An easy down, we headed out the side exit of Bunce.
