Colorado Adventure 2009 – Taylor Park to Leadville

After arriving in Taylor Park, we could have easily driven over Cottonwood Pass and have been in Nathrop pretty quickly, but my goals were a little more ambitious for that first day 😉 Instead we headed north towards Aspen via Taylor Pass.

This was the most difficult section on the trail.

Climbing up to the pass

Great views from the top

Headed down towards Aspen

Before heading to Aspen, we took the short side trip up Little Annie and Midnight Mine Roads. These were just easy roads through a residential area, but there were some nice views to be had.

After topping off my gas tank in Aspen, we headed even further north to Basalt where we hopped on Frying Pan Road past the Ruedi Reservoir and on to Hangerman Pass.

To be continued…
