Leaving Hwy 24 behind, we start to climb.
After the first couple of miles the road is level and gravel but very wash-boardy.
Then it narrows, turns and climbs.
We climb through lots of aspens then break out above the tree line. Here's the Jeep at the end of the road. The following pictures are a panoramic view going to the left.
Looking out over the Twin Lakes.
Then the town of Twin Lakes.
See the "bowl" on the mountain? There's still some snow outlining one side of it.
Of course the view was way better than it looks in the photos.
I took this photo of the trail on the way back down the mountain
Where the roads intersect there is a two room cabin whose roof is falling in.
