2008: Escape of the DNC; Day#6

28 Aug

On this day, it was originally all about a scenic drive. We started the day at Rifle Cap Falls and explored some of the shallow caves there too.


We now hop onto County Road 8 for a nice drive through the mountains stopping for a picnic at the Ripple Creek Overlook. Nothing like having lunch and listen to the Elk “Bugle” in the valley below.


We resume our drive passing over Ripple Creek Pass (10,343 ft.) and stop for a photo stop as we cross over Dunckley Pass (9,763 ft.) eventually coming out at Yampa, CO.


At this point we detour as we learned just 2 days before we left that the Kremmling Depot is scheduled to be moved so we decided to swing by and get a few shots. This takes us over Gore Pass (9,527 ft) and the cars transmission is starting to say enough.

Well, wouldn’t you know it, when we reached Kremmling our view got blocked a bit to get a nice clean shot of the depot.

Afterwards we head for Steamboat Springs for the night but to get there we must cross over Muddy Pass (8,710 ft.) and Rabbit Ears Pass (9,426 ft.); can you hear the car grown…
