They opened it yesterday for this season, so we had to go. The weather was very inviting, if nippy at the summit (62F at 8100 ft). 70 miles in total, and sooo worth it:
The aspen trees were in different stages of foliage, down to not even budding at the higher altitudes. Where they had the fresh green out, it was just beautiful.
Lots of other bikers out too, and not a single other scooter on that ride (not that we expected one). Some cagers brutally cutting blind corners, so the loud horn got a little workout
