Just returned from a fun week of jeep trails in Colorado. We started out in Ouray and spent three day's there. I wanted to find some trails that I have not tried before so we started with a easy one, Last dollar road where I got this cool shot.
Image
This is from the top of California pass.

Image

And looking down from California pass to lake como.

Image

From there we moved camp over to the Buena vista area. We had day trip over Pearl pass and came back on Taylor pass. That did make for a long day as My brothers jeep had a over heating problem and we had to stop many times to let it cool down. But this trail was the by far the best of the trip.

Image

I don't usually like windshield shots but my brother did get a couple of good ones

Image

We did make it to the top

Image

I did get a little rim rash and broke the bead for a second but it did not go flat.

Image

Then on to Taylor pass.


Image

The trail down was a little rocky.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

The next day was a trail that is the highest trail in North America.Mt Antero It tops out at 13,750 feet.
The long climb up.

Image

Image

The trail below us.

Image

The view from the top.

Image

I wish that atv would not of been in this shot. I may have to photo shop it out.

Nice pics and beautiful country. One day I hope to my Jeep up that ways.
I like the atv in the shot, gives the place a nice sense of scale.
