Took the old girl up to 11,500ft today in an attempt to scout some old mine ruins and prospect a bit. It was a great ride - but I wasn't sure about the turn I needed to take to the "old mine" and ended up riding to the "new mine." Well, I got stopped at a gate with a sign that had the sternest warning I have ever seen! Needless to say I did not venture further! I did get a nice view of my intended destination from across the valley. I'll save that for another ride. On the way back I stopped along the North Fork of the South Platte River and was happy to see over a dozen nice Rainbow Trout in full spawning mode. Should fish well this Fall.
