the jeep group to travel Pickle Gulch - a trail I've yet to visit. The
trail starts near the Peak-To-Peak highway and extends up into the
forest. We will either turn around and head back or we'll connect into
another trail or two. The area is heavily traveled from mining days.
There are old mines (and a scant few current mines) heavily scattered
through the area.
After the trails I made the typical jump to the East Portal of the
Moffat tunnel. No train today though the trek from the highway to the
tunnel is enjoyably scenic.
I know that US 34 between Loveland and Estes Park has opened. For the
past two winters it was under resident permit access only. The highway
is under construction from the floods several years back. Knowing I can
get to Loveland from Estes via US 34 - it's time to see if the General
Store in Glen Haven is open. Warm Cherry Cobler, Soft and sweet Cinnamon
Rolls, Taffy, Fudge. MmmmMmmm. I arrived five minutes before
close and was the last customer. Cherry Cobler was not available but a
cinnamon roll was!!
Sadly, the first half of the photos were not usable. I believe I had
the camer set to some manual setting for a project vs. automatic
landscape scene. The first half of Pickle Gulch - no photos.
