Nice. Been there, but only sightseeing, not towing. Was turned around once o to blizzard conditions causing a white out. Be safe.

Nice, but what I really want to know is when the "pass" up to the Bonanza OHV will be clear of snow. We usually ride just South of Marshall Pass trailhead/parking area to Bonanza.

Went 2 weeks ago and it was still not passable.

We were in the mid-70s here yesterday and today. With the warm temps and high sun angle I'm watching the snow melt daily across the valley. If its not open by now a couple more days of this and I'll bet it will be.

Nice to hear. Also glad to know that 4 mile south rec area opened all its gates on its OHV trails.

I wish I lived in Salida instead of Colorado Springs which is now a sanctuary city for Denver folks who can't afford rent or housing there. Then again, Salida got all uppity and expensive too as many locals I've met over the years have said that they can no longer afford to live there. I guess it is contagious.

After 34 years on the front range we feel lucky to be here. There's still some afordable places outside of town if you're willing to drive a few minutes.

Hope you get up to Bonanza soon.

I just sold my house in the northern suburbs of Denver back in February, quit my job and am now full-timing in my 5'ver.

In New Mexico now...not sure where I will end up!

Just because someone has been "doing it for years with no problems" doesn't mean you should!

How long have you been gone?

Denver has really changed in the last couple of years.

Amazon is screwing it up!

I predict a big market crash there in the next five years...
