pretty excited at this point. i can see where i am going…. up.
here are some aspen trees that have not turned golden yellow yet. it seems pretty late in the season for these to still be green but i was told that we had a wet year.
there is the start of the one way uphill gravel section. it was actually pretty crowded. the sign actually read: “9 miles to fall river pass narrow steep switchbacks no vehicles over 25ft ” i should be ok.
the road meanders through a ravine for the first few miles before it really starts to kick up. this picture was taken on the south side of the road.
i was about here… but it felt like i was at least twice as far.
