Absolutely doable on a dual sport. Especially Owl Creek Pass. Watch for deer though, I almost whacked a few including a MONSTER buck. There are some free range cattle up there too, so hitting one of those on a bike wouldn't be the most awesome thing ever done.

It's really pretty right now, but late September - early October is the best time to be there IMO.

Thankfully, Libby likes to sleep close and I made a little room for her in the sleeping bag.

All the rain caused some pretty major rock slides. The lake sits in a bowl surrounded by big peaks on 3 sides, and the sound of the slides echoed off the 13k+ walls like gun shots. It was LOUD pretty amazing to see.
Awesome. I'll have to go check some of those out soon. Thanks for sharing.
