Nice to see this run coming together. I am going at the end of the month so thinking of maybe hitting the Marble area or Pearl Pass next week...just need to find out if they are open. Looking forward to pictures. Stay safe!

Wish I could've made it... But I guess the career is a ill more important. FYI the trails here in ga are kinda useless. The only places to wheel here are either in paid parks($30) plus or illegally. Thank god for CO fs roads!!!!!

2 cups of coffee and 1 double shot espresso drink and I made it home. Great times as usual. Hope everyone else has a safe trip back.

I am working on my pics and should have them up tonight sometime.
Had a great group and saw some amazing places!!!
Now to start planning next years run.

OK finally got day 3 together. This was Mineral Point to Animas Forks up over to Placer Gulch/Picayne Gulch to Silverton for lunch. Back through Silverton/Lake Como Trail and down Corkscrew back to the highway and head back to Ouray for some Cold Brews and good times with all that came.
Thanks, Corrie, Justin, John, Mike, & Tim (Tell the others that aren't on here thanks for me too) for all the great memories of the 2nd Annual Ouray Run. My head and Heart is still there.
It was an amazing trip and Highly recommended for it amazing vistas.

The area is so amazing that it really doesn't matter which you run if you have'nt been there before. That being said if you want some challenging spots the Pouskeegee Gulch. Scenery I found that Placer Gulch was real good with not so many people. BlackBear is a must if you are not bothered by steep narrow shelf roads.
Enjoy your trip. It is truly my favorite place on Earth.

Will be heading there on Wed but am staying in Telluride this time...will be nicer for the girlfriend, though I realize it is not the best logistically. Need some suggestions for Thursday- may be solo so Poughkeepsie is out.

Wed: May get there around 4PM so not sure if we can unload at Telluride and still hit anything.
Thu: Ophir? Then maybe Governor and Sydney? Need suggestions here
Fri: Imogene, then Black Bear, then not sure yet
Sat: Alpine Route (Mineral, Engineer, Cinnamon, etc.)

Ouray to Lake City: Hit Mineral creek just south of Ouray and go to Animas Forks. From there you have the option to get to Lake City via Engineers Pass or Cinnamon Pass. I suggest the Engineers route. You will get more waterfalls, old mine ruins, and general history.

Durango to Ouray: Make sure to do that during the day (and not at night) the views are spectacular and few guard rails.

Ouray to Telluride: Three choices; Imogene Pass, Black Bear Pass, and Opher Pass. All good choices. Imogene is my favorite, lots of mine history and at least 10 water falls. Black Bear is the most challenging, and hair razing, make sure not to poop your pants. In past years there hve be numerous off roader deaths on this pass. Not to be taken lightly. You first see Telluride like your landing in an airplane. The steps coming into Ingram Falls are more scary but the switch backs after Ingram Falls (especially the first three) are the most dangerous.
Opher Pass. Pleasant drive, narrow shelf road on the west side, puts you back on pavement just south of Telluride.

I headed up there tomorrow, will be there almost a week.

Have fun
