Epic Road Trip – Day 4

Day 4’s agenda was to attempt to make it to the top of Black Bear pass, and then back down to Corkscrew Gulch, to Hurricane Pass, to Animus Forks.

We knew Blackbear was closed on the downhill side to Telluride, but wanted to try to at least get to the pass.   I talked to several locals in town that said they thought it was open to the top, but nothing confirmed for sure.

Our attempt was short lived.  About a mile up the trail we met a hiker coming down.  He told us the road was close just a short distance ahead from a large snow drift crossing the road.  With that, we all turned around and headed down and towards Corkscrew Gulch.

We passed this awesome tracked Jeep on the way.
