What I want for the Winter Solstice is a Mountain Ride

So I went and got it. For the MTBR, picture heavy version, click here.

Georgetown, Empire and all the surrounding Mining Ruins were my playground for the day before I reached 10,000 ft above sea level and got shut down by snowdrifts. Still 4 hours, a bit of 4x4 roads and singletrack made life good while the rest of Denver mountain bikers regulated themselves to road riding(pfft!) or driving 2 hour south to Pueblo.
