After finishing up Tomichi Pass at US Highway 50, we headed east a short ways towards Sargents and turned off to follow the old railroad grade over Marshall Pass.

We finished up earlier than planned, so we had plenty of time to check out a few more trails. We made our way north towards Fairplay to check out Browns and Breakneck Passes.

Soon we were back on the highway headed south. We ended up stopping at Jan’s in Buena Vista for some dinner before heading back to camp for the night. It was another great day.
