Winter Wheeling in September!

I went up Imogene pass today. I didn't have time to go the last 1/4 mile as it was getting dark and very cold. It took me at least an hour to get from Tomboy Mine to where you see me here. And that was only a mile or so.
Here are some pics.

Re: Winter Wheeling in September!

Very nice, and HIGH, since there aren't hardly any trees around. Are you going up there with just your truck? Be careful if so. Wouldn't want to get stuck up there alone. Not just talking about stuck, I mean, on my beach trip the other day, I was thinking gee, if my stater or solenoid died on me sitting out on the beach here...or the many other mechanical things that could act up at the worst time, that would suck with no one else around.

Some people from Florida in a Jeep did get stuck up there when the storm hit. They had to be airlifted out. Apparently the guy used a band-aid and camera battery to power his cell fone which had gone dead.

Re: Winter Wheeling in September!

Yeah. They got stuck on Tuesday and were lifted out on Thursday. I went up just past Tomboy on Wednesday and it was snowing like crazy. I could not see 10 feet infront of me never mind the road. There was already 6-12" and I was beginning to get stuck. I then turned around and went back down. Aparently the people were not more than a few hundred yards infront of me but I had no idea. What are people from Florida doing up at 13,000ft. in a snow storm anyway.
By the way, can someone tell me what I did wrong posting my pics? [img]images/graemlins/thud.gif[/img]

Snow? I wish! I'll have to wait 'til February, then drive an hour just to play in some.

Snow comming to our area, only at the 1400m level though. Nice pics, was in the Colorado area a few years ago and was interesting how everything is at those high elevations. Lots of Broncos there too.
