    Default Fall Color Run -- Argentine Pass & McClellan Mtn.



    It was a beautiful day up on the Mountain. Tom (wcrosman), Jim (otisDog), Andrew (AndrewG) and myself had a great day cruising up to the top of Argentine Pass and McClellan Mountain. Twice over 13000ft. The leaves aren't quite at their peak but were amazing none the less. Discovered that a JKU requires 3 and 4 point turns on some of the switchbacks up there as well. It was quite windy over at the I70 overlook, but the top of Argentine and McClellan were calm as can be. Not a lot of serious wheeling but can't get much more scenic.Took a lot of photos, all can be found here... https://picasaweb.google.com/1144259...eat=directlink

    Here's a few
