Default Argentine Pass 8-29-09

Wow, this was an amazing day and I did a lot of exploring that I have wanted to do for years! I am also happy that I am more familiar with this area, with it being our adopt-a-road and all. Even though Ricardo and Rick were having troubles with their truck and weren’t able to make it, the local residents kept me company:


I saw some deer (a couple does, then later a couple bucks, and later a doe with two fawns), two cow elk, and some raptors and other high-altitude critters like Pika.

LEG 1, Trailhead to Sidney Tunnel – 4.47 miles
I left the trailhead about 2:00 pm on an overcast and somewhat rainy and thundery afternoon, but since the hardtop was on it was no problem. As I went up the road at a good clip, I saw that all our signs were in good shape, so they have fared better this year than last year (at least so far). I came to an intersection that I had never been to, going up to the Sidney Tunnel, and decided to go up it and see where it went; seeing as I had never traveled that path before. When I got to the end of it you can see what I found in this thread.
