Every one, thank you. :bowdown:.

This year's run turned into a plan M(?). Lost count. Brian, Kim, Dave, and everyone else, thank you for everything:thumb::cheers:. I felt bad cutting the run short, but was good to get home and rest up for today.

Hopefully you guys had a productive Sunday.

Fun pictures so far!! Back is slowly getting better.... still need to work through pics, but another for now. It was fun working our way through Napoleon Pass, showing all the naysayers that it's doable.

One more photo from St. Elmo - my daughter said I should post this to accurately reflect what we saw of the various ATV riders.

Perry, thanks for a great weekend, glad to hear that you are doing better and I hope your new job goes well. As I mentioned that I may hike on top of Cumberland Pass, which I did on Sunday. Hiked and drove above treeline "Duncan Hill Road". The upper road, just west of Napoleon Pass road on the ridge. Did not go below treeline due to being by myself. Another road to look at. Passes alot of mines.

Brian,

Sounds like a interesting road. Will have to investigate more.

Thought i'd finally get some pics up from the Ghost Town Run last weekend. Again, sorry it got cut short, but was nice to get rested up for the training this past week. Was a fun time hanging with every one. Thanks to every one who made it. And to Brian, Kim, and Dave for looking after me:bowdown::thumb::cheers:.

I finally got my photos up from last weekend. Thanks again for the great time! I've linked to the individual posts on my blog on each description below where there are a bunch more photos. If anyone wants a specific photo in full resolution, let me know!

Some neat machinery in the tramway house at the Mary Murphy Mine. (https://www.douglasvanbossuyt.com/2016/07/23/mary-murphy-mine/)

The not-so-ghost town of St. Elmo (https://www.douglasvanbossuyt.com/2016/07/23/st-elmo/).

Cumberland Pass (https://www.douglasvanbossuyt.com/2016/07/23/cumberland-pass/). It turns out that building we saw is in fact a fire lookout. No road to it but there is a trail.

You'll want to go here (https://www.douglasvanbossuyt.com/2016/07/23/splish-splash/) to check out my truck splashing around in the water. (I can't figure out how to embed Instagram photos here)

The off camber bit on Tomichi Pass (https://www.douglasvanbossuyt.com/2016/07/24/tomichi-pass/) is pretty unnerving.

https://www.douglasvanbossuyt.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/07/IMG_4052-1-750x563.jpg

The shelf road above the townsite of Tomichi (https://www.douglasvanbossuyt.com/2016/07/24/tomichi/) is pretty tight in a few places.

Up on Old Monarch Pass (https://www.douglasvanbossuyt.com/2016/07/24/old-monarch-pass/) on our way back to Denver.

Can't stop without putting this photo in!
