I do a pretty poor job of chronicling our day trips, as I tend to be focused on the driving, and we also take our two (young) kids with us so, alot of my attention is on keeping them asleep/happy and us on a timeline. We just did a 4-day/3-night trail/camping trip in Central CO as well, and I did a bit better of pictures there..
I won't blather on about the trail details.. most of that is easily found in trail guides and I don't have much more to add. None of these are particularly hard, and some of them I would like to get back to (sans kids) but I'm working my way through a long "to go" places in Colorado (I lived here once before for three years and failed to take advantage of the time here, now I'm trying hard to get out and see as much as I can).
ON with the show.
Poorly documented trip over Boreas Pass to Breckenridge for a rest stop/ice cream, and then back over Georgia Pass coming home.
Boreas Pass, goes between the historic hamlet of Como and over to Breckenridge along a former rail line. At the pass there are rental cabins (part of the 10th Mountain Division ski hut sytem) and an old static-display rail car). Easily driven by any type of car.. basically a smooth dirt road.

Georgia Pass (named for a Georgia based mining company that used it for access to their mine). A bit technical on the west side (definitely a 4WD trail) and also poorly marked. Coming out of Breckenridge, you occassionally have to guess which of the numerous splits in the trail will carry your along your desired path.. not as hard as I am making it sound, but some bits of fun driving. Shot of the boy/cruiser at the Pass looking East. The east side is much smoother/easier.
