One of the streams that feed into Taylor reservoir. This is cold, clear, mountain water, and it's popular with the local fishermen. Some folks even drag their boats all the way up the pass just to fish in real mountain water. Like we always say about Colorado water, "we drink it first."
I've been running around the mountains all day so all I have for everyone is pictures.
On the road to Tincup.
Tincup is at the foot of those big peaks in the background.
Before you get to Tincup there's an old log building that is a country store, gas station, and restaurant. And it's a gathering place for a lot of the off-road guys that meet up here before they head out for the trails. This area is a very popular destination for ATVs and dirt bikes.
Making plans for the ride. A lot of off-roaders meet here because there's two huge parking lots where they can leave their ATV and motorcycle trailers.
This is a boondocking area where I've stayed before, but I've never seen more than two or three RVs here in the past, and now it looks like an RV Park.
This is another place I've boondocked, and actually I've never seen anybody stay here before. I don't know what's going on, I keep looking at my calendar thinking it must be a holiday or something, but it's not, its just an ordinary Tuesday.
The Tincup general store, where you can buy an actual tincup, which is guaranteed to burn your lips off if you ever try to drink hot coffee out of it.
