Independence Gold Mining Claim - Colorado - 2017
The Independence lode was said to have been discovered on Independence Day of 1879, and by 1880 a camp was established that was home to 300 people. The lode was then owned and operated by the Farwell Mining Company, which acquired many successful mines in the area.
Durango and Ouray Colorado
Durango and Ouray are beautiful places to visit on your roadtrip through Colorado! We had so much fun exploring the area and driving on the stunning Million Dollar Highway and enjoyed free camping in the National Forest and BLM land, hiking on various trails and dipping in the hot springs in Ouray. It was Vanlife at its best! Here's our favorite places: Free Camping: BLM camping near Durango: GPS: 37.2193, -107.6992 https://www.campendium.com/durfield-dispersed and GPS: 37.2432, -107.5512 https://www.campendium.com/sauls-creek National Forest camping near Little Molas Lake: GPS: 37.744870, -107.705163 https://www.campendium.com/little-molas-lake-campground The campendium description is for the campground loop up on Little Molas Lake but we found it too crowded up there and instead found a great equestrian-friendly campsite along Rd 584 while driving up towards Little Molas Lake, see our GPS coordinates. It was nice and private!

This one was our favorite: Ouray Brewery: https://www.ouraybrewery.com/restaurant There is so much to do in this area, from endless hiking, river rafting and cycling just to name a few. Also so many options for camping in the surrounding area. We absolutely love soaking in any hot springs and highly recommend a visit to Ouray's Hot Spring. Go in the evening and enjoy the magic views: http://ourayhotsprings.com/ Cell Signal is very spotty outside of towns in Colorado and as we use Verizon, it was quite a struggle to get enough signal to get some work done and for us as digital nomads we need cell connection or signal for our wifi hotspot. We use a WeBoost signal booster device: https://amzn.to/2FPV4KM which was very helpful in improving the signal enough to get some work done even on our National Forest campsite at Little Molas Lake. We absolutely love Colorado and highly recommend taking a road trip and enjoying the beautiful mountains in the area. Thanks for subscribing to our channel!

Silverton, Colorado. Animas Forks & Old Hundred Mine
I mention in the first part of this video that I can not say enough good things about Silverton and it's true. A nice little mountain town, exactly what you would expect one to be. The history is worth learning about and a few drives into the mountains are most definitely worth doing. We camped fro a week just west of town on Mineral Creek at a place called Kendal Campground. There are many places along this road to camp for free. The setting is awesome. The Old Hundred Mine Tour is a tourist type thing to do. We enjoyed it. I think the kids really get a kick out of it. Special thanks to our guide Joe who did a really good job. Animas Forks is a ghost town up in the mountains to the northeast of Silverton, two wheel drive passable. It was another really nice trip. From there we continued down a 4x4 road to Ouray. It was a bit more than I would have liked to do but really exciting. I prefer to travel these types of roads with a few other people for safety, since we were alone it was a bit nerve racking. Lots of fun for sure but kind of rough a time or two not to mention very steep in places. The highlight of our trip there was the hike to Ice Lake. It is a do not miss destination, however you need to be in shape for this one, it's long and steep. I have also done a video on that trip with all the details.

Erickson Gold Mining Claim - Colorado - 2017
The Erickson mine was discovered in 1880 when the price of silver was still supported by the US government. The mine was abandoned in the 1890s when the price of silver drastically fell. The mine reopened several times since then, with the intent to mine for gold. Today the mines will need extensive rehabilitation. The entrances will need to be dug out and supported and there are several collapsed structures on the claim. Surveyors report large amounts of visible gold found in the discarded ores. It would be smart to start working the existing ore dumps before working the veins underground.
ORDIP Vids: Cement Creek 4x4 Trail  Ouray, Co
*ALL POV VIDEO WAS SHOT WITH THE FOLLOWING EQUIPMENT: SJ4000 BY SJCAM (Amazon Affiliate link): http://amzn.to/2sUuPKA Joby Suction Cup Mount with locking arm mount (Amazon Affiliate link): http://amzn.to/2tOxZzL After a friend and I took Corkscrew Gulch up to the top of the trail, we decided to hit Cement Creek and head down into the town of Silverton. While Cement Creek 4x4 road is definately more mild than Corkscrew Gulch, there is still a lot of cool things to see. Along the trail are off-shoot trails that you can explore, old relics of the mining past and beautiful scenery. Even though our time for the day was limited, we did manage to take out a bit of time to check out some of the old mining equipment at one of the mines near the main road. This particular mine has modernized equipment working in it. They were metering the water flow, and this indicates that the mine is still probably owned by one of the local Ouray or Silverton mining companies. So, with that in mind, it's a good remember that the mines are private property, and shouldn't be explored without permission. Please also remember to like, comment, subscribe and share.

Paint Mines Interpretive Park in Calhan, Colorado—just 30 miles east of Colorado Springs—has been frequented by humans for over 9,000 years. Early Native Americans used the colorful clay for their pottery and for ceremonial purposes, and they also used the narrow canyons to trap wild game like buffalo. This vibrant park is 750 acres in size with 4 miles of hiking trails. * This video is proudly produced in partnership with the Colorado Tourism Office: http://www.colorado.com/ DOWNLOAD OUR APP APPLE: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/travelstoke/id983733875?mt=8 ANDROID: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.matadornetwork.travelstoke&hl=en MORE FROM MATADOR NETWORK WEB: http://matadornetwork.com/ INSTAGRAM: https://www.instagram.com/matadornetwork/ YOUTUBE: https://www.youtube.com/user/MATADORnetwork FACEBOOK: https://www.facebook.com/matadornetwork ABOUT MATADOR NETWORK MatadorNetwork.com and its social channels are the #1 digital destination for affluent millennial travelers and adventurers.

What really Happened in Gilman, Colorado (ghost town)
The true story of Gilman, Colorado, abandoned in 1984. I have included in this film found footage from the Gilman mine site, I found locked up in a old shed in the mine town. My uncle used to work their, and he said some weird stuff went on their. Including one day when half of the miners disappeared and they shut down the mine the same day. Later on a lot of government looking men showed up, all saying they from the EPA, and forced everyone out of town within a hour. I do not believe it was the EPA, as my uncle said they were all packing heat. I believe it was some corrupt form of government.

2015 Christian Crawlers Colorado Adventure part 7 Red Mountain Mining area
The Red Mountain Mining District was prospected as early as September of 1879. As the miners made their way up Mineral Creek, north of Silverton, they found deposits of gold, silver, lead, and copper. The Red Mountain Mining District, on both the north and south sides of Red Mountain (Sheridan) Pass, was the most prolific in the area. In 1881, John Robinson discovered the fabulously rich Yankee Girl and Guston Mines. These two rich mines were located just above a broad mountain valley, called Ironton Park, which is in the north end of the district. Ironton was established in 1883, and platted on March 20, 1884. There were several settlements in the area at the time Ironton was established. Ironton was home to many miners who worked in the mines above town on the slopes of Red Mountain. Red Mountain, as it is locally referred to, is actually three mountains made up of highly oxidized iron. This iron gives the mountains a dark red-orange color that makes the mountains seem to glow after a rain. If the light is just right, it appears that someone has dumped red and yellow paint down the sides of Red Mountain. If you look at a map of the area, you will see the three Red Mountains simply called Red Mountain number one, two, and three. Ironton's location made it a natural shipping point for the area. Supplies for the mines arrived on pack trains, made up of sturdy little mules and burros. The little pack mules would find themselves lashed up to every kind of merchandise imaginable. Lumber, piping, sides of frozen beef, and even a coffin would arrive on the pack trains. The pack trains could travel the steep trails and deliver the supplies to the mines above. In return, the ore from the mines was loaded on the pack trains for shipment into town. Ironton was connected with Ouray to the north, by a toll road, that today we call the "Million Dollar Highway." Many authors would have us believe that Otto Mears decided a road from Red Mountain Pass, to Ouray, would be a great idea, so he just up and built one. The road was actually started by the Ouray and San Juan Wagon Road Company on April 1, 1880. Progress on the road was made in 1880 and 1881, but by 1882, the company was running out of money. The connection between Ouray and Red Mountain Pass was a very important one because the Red Mountain District, to the south of Ouray, was booming. As the months went by, the County Commissioners were receiving many complaints from area residents because of the slow rate of progress. After several attempts to reorganize, and refinance the company, Otto Mears offered to purchase a 54 percent interest in the toll road company. Mears put a much larger and well-financed construction crew to work and succeeded in completing the road. Mears was well known in the area as a competent builder of roads. Mears had the connections and money required to accomplish such a large task. The new toll road opened shipping and gave the mines in the Red Mountain District another source of supplies. There are several different stories to explain the name of the "Million Dollar Highway." Some writers will tell you it is because the road was made with the tailings of local mines that would be worth millions of dollars. Others put forth the idea that some traveler, who had just completed a trip over the road was heard to say "I would not travel that road again for a million dollars." In fact, the name came about because of a simple comment made in 1921. At a planning meeting being held to discuss the contracts to rebuild the highway, a contractor present noticed that the contracts all added up to a figure very close to one-million dollars, something that could have easily been determined using Flagship Merchant Services or a similar program. In his comments about the road project he included the phrase, "...this million-dollar highway...." The name stuck with the locals and soon everyone was referring to the county road by that name.

1.5km Underground in the Yankee Girl Mine (Wildhorse Adit)
Please note this is on private property. We got permission to come onto their property and view the mine. The Yankee Girl mine is located on the north side of Oscar Creek, 3 kilometres east-northeast of Ymir. The nearby Dundee property was one of the first to be developed in the Ymir area. Gold was initially discovered on the Yankee Girl in 1899. The Yankee Girl and Dundee (082FSW067) mines were amalgamated in 1940. A crosscut was developed from the Yankee Girl 1235 level to connect with the Dundee adit. The Dundee vein occurs 300 metres to the south. Enterprise Consolidated Mining Company, Limited optioned the property in March 1928 from Texas Yankee Girl Mines, Limited. The company name Enterprise) was changed to Yankee Girl Consolidated Mines, Limited. Further development work was done in the upper levels of the mine. The workings at that time included 2 shafts, 5 adits and 10 levels totalling some 5486 metres of openings. In the fall of 1928 a new crosscut adit was begun on the Ymir (Wildhorse) Creek side of the mountain 233 metres below the 1235 level. When work was suspended late in 1929 the Wildhorse adit had been driven 869 metres.

Million Dollar Hwy 550 Colorado   Ouray-Silverton Entire Road
GoPro Hero at 720p mounted rearward on my Valkyrie, this is Otto Mears' Million Dollar Highway, Colorado Hwy550 over Red Mountain Pass from Ouray to Silverton, historic 1880's gold mining towns. This road is rated number one or two in most lists of best rides on the continent - the other being Beartooth Pass on the Montana-Wyoming border. Members of the Valkyrie Riders Cruiser Club in view, with "Misfit" immediately behind on his silver Tourer, staying close most of the time as the Hero is very wide angle. This first edit is a test to see if I can post a 40 minute video. I may do edits, work in the front view and see if I can use the zoom fn of GoPro Studio to good effect in places. I was close behind Darby who suffered an accident on this weekend and passed on, like to edit those views in but a bug on the lens and fogging messed it up about halfway through.

Pickle Gulch. Black Hawk, CO. Solo. #48
Pickle Gulch is a sweet trail and has been on the list for awhile. Real fun obstacle-wise and great views all around. It passes 3 mines and there are a bunch of old buildings and camping all around. The clip starting at 1:50 with the hill and that rock ramp after it has a bypass. Any drone shots have my girlfriend Tia at the wheel, she filmed everything else except Michigan Hill which she drove the length of. Have fun! T-Shirts and Crew Neck: https://teespring.com/stores/b-roll-offroad-store If you like the content and have the means consider helping me out on Patreon! I'm fine with the work but unfortunately everything costs money to maintain. As this (hopefully) grows I will have real rewards and benefits for the patrons. Thank you so much! https://www.patreon.com/BRollOffroad My Tires: https://amzn.to/2whk2MF I love these tires. The only others I'd take are the BFG KO2 but they don't make them in this size and the KM2's are amazing. You can probably imagine the amount of driving I do weekly and how much abuse my tires get. These things last, everyone knows this, you've seen it in my videos. My Tire Deflators: https://amzn.to/2nYVxzU These tire deflators have many $15 copies but the others just don't hold up or are inaccurate. I don't know what the deal is, they look identical to me too but read the reviews- they're bad. I've been using these Staun's for over a year and never had a problem, I air down a lot. Set them at the trail so your tires will be the same temp when you get to the trail next time. My Compressor: https://amzn.to/2PuerLH There are better ones but I'd just get a bigger VIAIR, not someone different. Airs up all my 33's from 14psi to 37psi in less than 10 minutes. The in-line gauge is inaccurate when the compressor is on because of the pressure passing through. You need to switch it off to get a real reading. You can combat this by figuring out what incorrect reading corresponds to the real one. When mine is right at 3 Bar (43psi) it's slightly over 37psi. I put it on another tire and then use my real gauge to set it exactly. My Microphone: https://amzn.to/2P1S3sb My microphone is the worst good mic you can get. BUT don't be fooled, it's a very good mic. Picture me getting in my car for the 50th time after I just ran up and down a hill... for the 50th time. Do you see me disconnecting my mic and gingerly setting it in some sort of nice case? No. It stays connected to the tripod, gets thrown into my all plastic cargo area and bounces around with other heavy items until the next one. It gets terrible interference from WiFi so you must make sure that it's off on your camera or phone. If you are trying to use this with your phone you need to get a TRS to TRRS cable which RODE makes. This is required because your phone will think the mic is headphones. My Tripod: https://amzn.to/2o8h6hL As mentioned, I'm hard on the entire setup. I went through 2 tripods in 1 month, a $20 and a $30. Buy it nice or buy it thrice. This thing gets opened and closed MANY times per week in rain, snow, dirt, and even in the middle of rivers. I love the 2-stage legs so i can make it real low in 2sec instead of shortening all the legs. My Drone: https://amzn.to/2Ug6qMD The Mavic, I think it's fantastic. You can tell how easy it was to progress through my videos. Besides maybe five times, you've seen every bit of flying since I got it. I don't fly in the city and I don't go to the mountains and not make a video. It is VERY easy to use. Took a little bit to get the settings dialed in but I learned everything I know on YouTube. My Drone ND Filters: https://amzn.to/2MHV0R0 The filters are a must. Again I have the worst ones and I am still very pleased. My first use was video #35 and I think it is very apparent. Illinois Gulch (#34 obviously) has a completely white sky, way too much blue. I'm still not even good about selecting the right one or changing them out but it's 10x better than nothing. My Books: https://amzn.to/2wmd20O CO https://amzn.to/2BzDIBc CO North https://amzn.to/2ByPuvy Moab FunTreks books are great. I like to bring as much information as possible when I go to the middle of nowhere. There's also no substitute for books or maps. Unless you drop them in the fire, they're going to work. They have coordinates and maps for everything, very in-depth info on sturdy pages. This is the stuff I've tested, this is what I like. I am very hard on all of my equipment frequently and it still works. I back all of these items and each company seems to back their product very well too. I guess it's easy to offer a warranty when your stuff doesn't break.

Louisville Colorado Town and Neighborhood Tour
Louisville Colorado has the distinction of being named Money Magazine's #1 best place to live in 2008, 2009, 2010 and 2011. The Money Magazine Study included crime rate, quality of life, health statistics, employment and housing measures. Obviously, Louisville was at or near the top in all of these categories to be #1 in the nation. Louisville Colorado is a small town with easy access to both Boulder and Denver. It's a town where kids walk to school and friends meet for lunch at an old town restaurant. Louisville Colorado was originally a coal mining town and was founded in the late 1800's. For many years Louisville's population was around 2,000 residents. Now it is a thriving town of 18,000. The highly rated schools are part of the Boulder Valley School District. There is one high school, two middle schools and four elementary schools. The schools consistently rank among the states best. There are many options for shopping and dining. Old Town features many quaint restaurants and is a great place to spend a relaxed evening. Louisville is surrounded by shopping; it is minutes from The Flatirons Crossing Mall and other large retailers like Super Target, Wild Oats Market and Costco. I'd be surprised if you had to go further than 10 minutes to find anything you would want to buy. Real Estate: There is a diverse housing stock in Louisville Colorado. In Old Town you will find bungalows and remodeled Victorians. The rest of Louisville was mostly developed in the 1970's through the 1990's. A typical neighborhood is Louisville features quiet, winding streets of well kept homes within an easy walk to a park or open space. Louisville's housing market is particularly strong. There is high demand and typically not many homes on the market. All of Boulder County is an outdoor mecca and Louisville in particular has a great outdoor lifestyle. It's easy to get around on a bike and there are many parks, a city owned recreation center, a golf course and open space trails to enjoy. So, if you are interested in living in Money Magazine's #1 Best Place To Live call me. I'm a Boulder County Native and one of the top Realtors in the area. I'd love to give you a personalized tour.

Durango's Top Summer Adventures - Rafting, Jeeping, & Mesa Verde National Park
Those seeking to get on the river for the first time or those looking to get their white water season off to a serene start, should consider rivers we would classify as “milder” options. These rivers typically have the Class I “moving water” to comfortably float down the river, some Class II “splashes” that get your legs wet just over the side of the boat, and potentially some Class III “wet and fun” that get you soaked head to toe! This is a great way to experience white water rafting in Colorado without getting in over your head. A mild option we provide in Colorado is the Lower Animas in Durango: https://mild2wildrafting.com/colorado-rafting/durango-rafting.html Ready for the next step up when it comes to white water rafting in Colorado? Steer towards a more intermediate river. These usually provide Class I “moving water”, Class II “splashes”, Class III “wet and fun”, and even some Class IV “big drops” which jump start your heart as you paddle through exciting whitewater. These rivers will keep you excited while you are able to take in some incredible scenery. These rivers can be more technical than the milder options, and they usually require a little more work as the guests must be willing to paddle. The payoff is very much worth it! The Upper Piedra River near Pagosa Springs is a great intermediate option: https://mild2wildrafting.com/colorado-rafting/upper-piedra-river.html Looking for the ultimate adventure that will make the hair on your arms stand up and your heart pump quickly? Then jump on the wild options of white water rafting in Colorado! The two rivers in Colorado we offer that we classify as high adventure are the Lower Piedra in Pagosa Springs and the Upper Animas in the Silverton area. The Upper Animas at high water, many consider to be the most difficult commercially run trip in the United States! Both of these areas provide Class II “splashes”, Class III “wet and fun”, Class IV “big drops” and Class V rapids that will get your adrenaline pumping and often need to be portaged. Both rivers you must be 16 years old and up and also in good health and physically fit. At Mild to Wild Rafting and Jeep Tours, we also take extra precautions on these rivers such as smaller guest to guide customer ratios, guides with more river miles than required by the state with trip leaders averaging 5,000 river miles for the Upper Animas, and have extra certifications such as wilderness safety. Other precautions we take include extra safety boats and required pre trip wetsuit fittings and practice swims. These rivers will leave you on top of the world! https://mild2wildrafting.com/colorado-rafting/lower-piedra-river.html https://mild2wildrafting.com/colorado-rafting/upper-animas-durango-rafting.html On our Durango Jeep Tour you will see numerous wildflowers, high-alpine meadows, and avalanche gullies. Following the La Plata River (meaning “Silver” in Spanish) to La Plata City, an old mining town established in 1875, you’ll discover the remnants of old mining claims. These include a tall intact chimney left from the crew quarters, the framework of old cabins, and tailing piles from actual mining areas. Then, you’ll continue to the peak of Kennebec Pass at 12,000 feet above sea level (also above tree-line). https://mild2wildrafting.com/jeep-trail-tours/durangos-la-plata-canyon.html Explore Colorado’s most preserved mining sites and immerse yourself in the history of the American West. Tour into the Tundra high above Silverton, a world away from the stresses of modern life with waterfalls, mountain wildlife, beautiful vistas and Colorado’s famous wildflowers. A great trip for the whole family and kids are extra entertained with our Mild to Wild scavenger hunt. Find the items on the checklist and get some fool’s gold! https://mild2wildrafting.com/jeep-trail-tours/silvertons-ghost-town.html A true Durango vacation is not complete without a day at Mesa Verde National Park.

Exploring the Lewis Mill - Telluride, CO
Rui and I explore the abandoned Lewis Mill, high up in the mountains of Telluride, CO. A towering five-story structure that sits in a beautiful alpine meadow at 12,450 feet is one of the most scenic pieces of history in the area. It is a little bit of work to get to but well worth it. Built in 1910, Lewis Mill was a high elevation ore mill. The mill was just one structure in a mining complex that also included a mine portal, tram house, bunkhouse and office, and was at one time powered by electricity from the Bridal Veil Power Station. - http://www.visittelluride.com/blog/hike-history

Cripple Creek (3), Colorado, United States.
Cripple Creek, Colorado 2005, gold mining camp For many years Cripple Creek's high valley, at an elevation of 9,494 feet (2,894 m), was considered no more important than a cattle pasture. Many prospectors avoided the area after the Mount Pisgah hoax, a mini gold rush caused by salting (adding gold to worthless rock). On the 20th of October, 1890, Robert Miller "Bob" Womack discovered a rich ore and the last great Colorado gold rush began. Thousands of prospectors flocked to the region, and before long Winfield Scott Stratton located the famous Independence lode, one of the largest gold strikes in history. In three years, the population increased from five hundred to ten thousand by 1893. Although $500 million worth of gold ore was dug from Cripple Creek, Womack died penniless on 10 August 1909. In 1896 Cripple Creek suffered two disastrous fires. The first occurred on April 25 destroying half of the city including much of the business district. Four days later another fire destroyed much of the remaining half. The city was rebuilt in a period of a few months, most historic buildings today date back to 1896. By 1900, Cripple Creek and its sister city, Victor, were substantial mining communities. During the 1890s, many of the miners in the Cripple Creek area joined a miners' union, the Western Federation of Miners (WFM). A significant strike took place in 1894, marking one of the few times in history that a sitting governor called out the national guard to protect miners from anti-union violence by forces under the control of the mine owners. By 1903, the allegiance of the state government had shifted and Governor James Peabody sent the Colorado National Guard into Cripple Creek with the goal of destroying union power in the gold camps.[citation needed] The WFM strike of 1903 and the governor's response precipitated the Colorado Labor Wars, a struggle that took many lives. Through 2005, the Cripple Creek district produced about 23.5 million troy ounces (979 1/6 troy tons; 731 metric tons) of gold. The underground mines are mostly idle, except for a few small operations. There are significant underground deposits remaining which may become feasible to mine in the future. Large scale open pit mining and cyanide heap leach extraction of near-surface ore material, left behind by the old time miners as low grade, has taken place since 1994 east of Cripple Creek, near its sister city of Victor, Colorado. The current mining operation is conducted by Cripple Creek and Victor Gold Mining Company (CC&V). The mine operates 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Mine operations, maintenance, and processing departments work a rotating day/night schedule in 12-hour shifts. With many empty storefronts and picturesque homes, Cripple Creek once drew interest as a ghost town. At one point the population dropped to a few hundred, although Cripple Creek was never entirely deserted. In the 1970s and 1980s travelers on photo safari might find themselves in a beautiful decaying historic town. A few restaurants and bars catered to tourists who could pass weathered empty homes with lace curtains hanging in broken windows. Colorado voters allowed Cripple Creek to establish legalized gambling in 1991. Cripple Creek is currently more of a gambling and tourist town than a ghost town. Casinos now occupy many historic buildings. Casino gambling has been successful in bringing revenue and vitality back into the area. It also provides funding for the State Historical Fund, administered by the Colorado Office of Archaeology and Historic Preservation. In 2012, Colorado casinos produced over $104 million in tax revenue for these programs https://youtu.be/D9Zf37YutQ4 Cripple Creek Colorado 2005

Radical Hill Colorado Offroad Trail 2013 FR286
So we decided to run a couple of trails - starting out off of 285 in conifer - we headed up to CR 60 - and up Webster pass. Once on top of Webster pass where it meets Redcones decent we decided to attempt radical Hill - (we will talk about that in a moment) - Once on top of Radical hill we descended into montrose and out hwy 6 to I70 back into denver. Webster Pass continues to be a very easy stroll through the woods - offering only the mildest difficulty to the average stock 4wd. Main area of concern is the switchbacks up to the top of the hill and a slight rocky section at the branch off for redcone. Radical hill - Technically - the trail offered some good obstacles and was easy enough to drive - but... It will mess with you mentally for a large portion of the ascent! We had to stop a couple of times and gather our thoughts as being that high up and the trail tipping in the hills direction will make ones self contemplate how dumb they really are. My wife has dubb'd it the "one and Done" - thus we have run it once and it will never grace our path ever again. if we choose to see the views from up top again we will be driving up the backside as the amount of off camber of the trail is not our cup of tea. This is a narrow trail - our JK felt to wide for it as 6"-1' of extra width is not enough in our book. I for one am glad we did it - but agree that it has been crossed off of our bucket list and we can move onto other trails. There are turn around spots at the bottom of the switch backs if you get butterflies.... like we did for about a half hour or so. We then headed to Peru rd and found Penn. Mine. Awesome location - loading pics now - a basic subaru can get back here. heading back - we got stuck in the Sunday evening I70 traffic at Idaho springs as they are currently doing tunnel work and was down to 1 lane. Thanks CDot~ i wanted to get home at 11pm from wheeling on a "school night" ;)~
