Colorado Adventure 2009 | Day 2
Sunday, August 2, 2009
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.
Start of Marshall Pass
Easy road the whole way
An old foundation at the pass
We stopped and had some lunch up there
Headed back down to meet up with US Highway 285
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.
In the trees at the starts of Browns Pass
Old cabin ruins
More cabin ruins
Headed to Breakneck Pass along Sheep Creek
An old cabin near Breakneck Pass
Headed back down
Instead of hopping back on the highway, we took a right and headed west over Weston Pass
Some storm coulds in the distance
It rained for a short time but cleared up quickly
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.
