As has been mentioned, we'd been riding hard without a break for 13 days. We were only a few hours away from our destination at McDope's by pavement, Francine's bike was acting up between the steering bearing and the stator / weak charging issue. I had routed a circuitous path trying to hit as many peaks and passes and dirt as possible, but needless to say, our threshold for bailing out to avoid suffering was quite low.

Red Cone ridge, Webster pass, Georgia Pass, were all in the cards today. We anticipated that some of these trails might be steep and technical, so we took advantage of the pickup truck, and stowed our camping gear in the back, where Julie would drive to McDope's and meet us at the end of the day.

Our first challenge would be Webster pass via Red Cone road. Both open, looking promising:

Like most "...pass" roads, they start out innocuous.

Ya' gotta heed these kind of warnings, though.

Now they got the whole country sectioned off; you can't make a move without a form." --Robert De Niro as Archibald 'Harry' Tuttle in Brazil, 1985.
