Webster Pass/Red Cone Colorado 8/20/06

Been wanting to take this trip for a while so I finally did. Anyone living near this area has probably heard of these two places, Red Cone more so. Basically it is a VERY VERY steep and loose trail that is around 12,000 feet up. So, there is no tree coverage at all. That means lots of room to roll down a mountain or two if not safe. We went up Webster backwards which meant we ended at the back of Red Cone by the sign that says do not go up this way. Well.............after seeinga few others do it I decided I should too. Scary as hell but the TJ never flinched.

Here are a few pics of Webster right at the ending of Red Cone:






Here are some people coming down, the camera doesn't show how steep it was. I was leaning over pretty far to not roll down the hill:

Wow!! I love that stuff. Live in Buena Vista so I know what kind of stuff you run. Not sure where Red Cone is? Have heard of it but I haven't been there. Unfortunately I broke mine on Chinaman's Gultch Loop 2 weeks ago. Blew the spider gears in my Track Lock diff. But at least I'm upgrading.

Nice pics, glad you got up there. It's also a pretty good Fall run when the leaves are changing down in the valley(s). Yellow and red aspens with Red and brown rock. MMMM MMMM Good!

yeah, awesome pics. I live in CO and love the mountains up here. You should check out argentine pass, santa fe peak and kingston peak trails too. I do have to disagree with dolphy though. I am from CA and I personally find the sierras to be more beautiful. Just my $0.02
