At least, they are on the road and not pooping and ripping up the grass on our greens in NC.  And don't get me going about homeowners who like to put statues of deer in their yard.

Too much snow last winter collapsed the roof. No one was hurt.

Dang Whip... Great photos! Particularly like the second one. :thumbsup: 

 

Makes me wonder why I left the Colorado in 1973.

Larry, Looks great.  I have had a couple pretty good lunches at the cafe/gas stop at Taylor Lake.  Have you gone south toward Tincup and taken the turn up to the Alpine Tunnel? A must see for me a couple times. Not sure I would do it on a big GS however.  Dirt scoots for me especially at my age.  I could never pick up a big bike when I biffed. :dopeslap:

This is what happens when you let a flatlander drive your car in the mountains.

To come back on the Alpine Tunnel road, I have done that on my mountain bike as well as on my GS a few times. It is an old railroad grade be and in parts you can see the wooden railroad ties still there. It is not a hard core off road type road and very easy to ride. YMMV of course..

 From what I understand there was a rockslide and it is closed for now...

Awesome photos Whip!!

If you look carefully you can see a helicopter being used as a high altitude crane.

The dirt switchbacks in the distance is the original Monarch Pass, the paved road is the pass we use today.
