Todd, thought you would have filled in the part where we got to the top and the "tunnel" was closed. Uggghhhh! Down we go.
Headed to Salida via Pitkin and Monarch Pass. Stayed at a youth hostel. I was able to repair my shaky skid plate with a great deal of assistance from Todd and the Hostel owners vice.
Funny thing was a lot of people left the hostel very early in the morning like 4a. We may have been snoring in 3 part harmony all night and could have been the only ones who slept.
