Day 4 - Wednesday
Peter is ready to go but a helmet would be advisable!
With "The Sound of Music" echoing in his ears Jamie attempts a ballet at the top of Cottonwood Pass.
And then Steve joins the act!
Looking at the backside of Ajax (Aspen's original ski mountain) from Taylor pass.
Heading towards Aspen on Richmond Hill Rd.
Contrast this kind of riding with what we would face after lunch on Peal Pass!
Yes, its going to rain but not till we get out on the road after lunch in Aspen.
I think they must ski here in the winter.
But I think Aspen management would prefer we waited till winter to go down Walsh's!
Steve with Aspen town in the background.
We fit right in with the summer crowd at Aspen. Yea, right!
But they did serve us lunch. Would highly recommend this Bar & Grill right next to "Little Annie's"
Jamie is thinking about trading in his back pack for little Grady - he's much lighter!
Water but no snow - yet!
There's the snow but where did the road go!! Not to panic, after all this is a jeep trail per the map.
Ah, found the road but is the Pass open??
We made it. Pearl Pass was open.
Wonder why Crested Butte wasn't called Aspen?
A great ride and the rain stopped and the sun came out as we came into Crested Butte.
