Silverton to Grand Junction

IntrepidXpedition 2007 | Day 6
Tuesday, July 24, 2007

On Tuesday, I had to start making my way to Grand Junction to attend the annual UFWDA Conference, but I didn’t have to arrive until later in the evening, so I had a bit of time to do some exploring before heading out. I woke up super early again to get squeeze as much exploring in during the daylight that I could. My plan was to take Ophir Pass over to Telluride and then to take Imogene Pass back to Ouray before heading north. Unfortunately, because of the storms I mentioned from the previous night, my plans would soon change.

Reaching Buena Vista

IntrepidXpedition 2007 | The Beginning & Troubles Along the Way…
Thursday & Friday, July 19-20, 2007

Day 0: The Beginning
Near the end of 2006 I had the idea to take a two week trip through Colorado, Utah and then into Wyoming & South Dakota staying off the pavement as much as I could. I decided to plan the trip for the end of July and early August so that all of the high passes in Colorado would be open. There was only one problem at that point; I didn’t have a Jeep capable of pulling off the trip. The Cherokee I had at the time, had become a dedicated rockcrawler and was no way capable of driving a couple thousand miles without being pulled on a trailer. That is not what I wanted to do on this trip.
