This photo is from 13,000 feet on the top of Imogene Pass. The million dollar highway is in the valley below 3000-5000 feet below
and on the far side of the valley you can see the "red mountains" and if you look.. a little stripe of switch backs that are part of "Corkscrew Pass" (above my tail light).
Well here about 6 hours (and 3 passes) later, we're on the other side on top of those red mountains at 12,000 feet on the top of Corkscrew Pass
Man I love riding in the San Juans.
If it weren't for the fact the high stuff is only open 3 months a year I'd make an effort to move down there. As it is I'll have to make due with getting down 2 or 3 times a summer.
...more to come...
Coming up next some background on The San Juans and a list of the San Juans passes, how best to approach them, and the various passes individual difficulty for flat-landers.
