Spent last week in Ouray. Left Monday, stopped by Proffitts Cruisers on the way down. Man do they have a lot of work..... Tuesday I headed up to Mineral Point. Explored the mine and some of the side roads. On my way back down to 550, saw a moose in front of me walking down the road. A jeep was coming up the other direction, so I turned of the vehicle so he could get by. Wednesday I headed up to Yankee Boy and Governor Basin and did a little bit of exploring. Thursday I was to lazy to do anything and just hung out, did have lunch at the brewery in Silverton. Friday I headed up Corkscrew Gulch to Hurricane Pass, California Pass down into California Gulch into Animas Forks for lunch. After lunch did Placer Gulch and Picayne Gulch and down into Silverton. As I was driving down the paved road to get into Silverton to meet some friends(they did other trails), I came upon a green T100 with a camper. Thought to myself that it looked familiar and turned around, sure enough it was KCwyo from this board. We talked for a bit before parting ways. Caught up with my friends in Silverton before we headed back to camp.
Saturday everybody had shown up from the club and we had a total of 14 rigs for the day. We headed south on 550 to Black Bear Pass. Bruce and Barbra Miller lead the group over in there lifted Prado. Not to much trouble through the first section. We arrived at the decent of the pass and started down. Everybody made it down without incident. The second switch back got me a little for some reason ..... but made it around. We had lunch in Telluride. Lots of people on town as the film festival was going on. After lunch we head to Imogene. Stopped shortly at Tomboy before continuing on. We had a little bit of traffic on the other side of the pass, but managed to get everybody down. Once back in OUray we stopped at the hot springs. A good way to end a long day of wheeling .
Here are some pics, working on downloading the rest... will post more later .
