While the rest of the group when on a bike ride I decided to explore Trail Ridge Road = I had intended to take it all the way to Estes Park but stopped short of it. What a fantastic mountain road. It is the highest continuously paved road in America toping out at 12,000 ft ASL. I stoped at the ticket and snack shack at 11,756 ft ASL.
Today, Wednesday 8/24/22 we went on the guided Continental Divide Trail with side by side Can Am off road vehicles. These machines are designed to go off road , over boulders etc. We saw people with new Ford F-150 going up and we both thought that was a big mistake. Never take your only vehicle on one of these trails - far better renting.
