And all I could think about was all that firewood I was passing... :lol: A buddy talked me into going riding with him. The first 10 miles go from 6000' to 10000' The middle 30 miles are up and down, but never below 9500'. The last 10 miles were the 'funnest' being all downhill from 11500' to 5500'. Trip about killed me, but I survived! Lots of snow up top still. Crazy for mid August Views and more climbing. As tough as it was... Pretty country to be riding in. On top the road becomes 'less developed' and is more like a jeep trail. This section had several landslides that had closed the road, but we were able to walk through them. The worst climb in the middle section. It seemed like it went on FOREVER. Starting at 9500' and you end up at 11000'.
