Hey Steve, Great pics. As usual make me jealous.... The first picture in georgetown to Guanella Pass especially... I know the woman that owns Duck Lake up on the pass and have fished there many times for cuthroats... I remember your ride report.. As always, your rides are tremendous.. If I lived there full time I'd like to join you...

Duck Lake -- Excellent! That is one high altitude, timberline bordering lake. Cool cabins spinkled around. Recorded a Guanella Pass ride and made a report here:
Sounds like you know the area well - it is a gem of a place.
I've stayed in those cabins and fished a # of times in return for some labor for the woman who owns it... Met her through a friend who was the mayor of Georgetown..

Fantastic pictures! Thanks for the torture. Man, do I hate living in MI.....
I lived there....
I am an ex resident of Alma and Summit county as well. So, this country is familiar to me. The last time I was over Hoosier Pass I received a ticket and got tossed in jail at Fairplay. It is a long story.....No, it was not on a motorcyle and there was a thick covering of snow on the road. Very scenic country, but so is all the surrounding area. With the "right" bike there are many dirt road rides around the area; the trip over Mosquito Pass being one. Love the pics.
