Buffalo Pass 09/23/14
« on: September 23, 2014, 05:02:48 PM »

On the way back from Strawberry Park hot springs, we (wife, kids and in-laws) drove up to Buffalo Pass.  It was listed at 7.7 miles of easy trail in the guide book.

Easy was an overstatement.  It was gravel road for the first half, and then spacious rocky road for the second half. I passed a Chevy Malibu in the first half.  Lots of forest service roads but I stayed off them today.  If it was raining, there were sections of rocky terrain that would be slick and actually require 4 wheel drive.

Trail damage was limited to the snacks my kids spilled in the back of my WK2.  The mother-in-law had a near vomit incident from the altitude and the bumpy road.

But it was a good ride for viewing leaves and  meandering around Steamboat Springs.

I've always wanted to do a fall trip to CO during the Aspen leaf change.  Beautiful!

I have to agree Ryan. Absolutely  gorgeous.

Think we can talk the ladies into a Colorado trip next fall?
