So I took a "bucket list" run today just to get a few more off the list. I left my house at 6am on a Sunday morning. Got home about 4:30pm. Some pictures of what I saw today...

Jones Pass:



Rollins Pass West

Riflesight Notch Trestle:




A lot in view here. Right to left is Winter Park & Mary Jane ski areas, Riflesight Notch, & Berthoud Pass:










Yankee Doodle Lake:



Needle's Eye Tunnel (Kingston Peak in background):





Curved Trestle:







Straight Trestle:




A shot for those familiar with Boulder County trails; Sugarloaf Mountain is right center and Caribou Hill is just left of center:



Crowded parking at end of Boulder Wagon Road:



And some Aspen Colors to make it even better. :)








That's All Folks! :)

Did you drive across that wooden deathtrap?
No. They've been closed since at least 1990. I (& NORAC) stand behind Tread Lightly and Stay The Trail principles absolutely. I drove the legally open trails and then hiked to where the pictures were taken. If I could legally drive on the trestle's, I would, and my X would be sitting smack in the middle of all those trestles! :)

Rollins Pass is a blast. I don't think I could bring myself to drive across those trestles even if they were open. It was nerve wracking enough walking across them!

Beautiful pics Buddy!
Another place I'd like to see.
Old RR, mining and townsites are my favorite things to explore.

Awesome pics! I've been meaning to get up there while the aspens are still changing. Maybe after I finish moving this week.
