    Flinders. These are flinders.

    Me too. Looks like a great ride. North, south, or west of home? Montezuma / Argentine Pass?

    The Guanella pass guess is pretty good. Looks like Idaho Springs/Dumont area to me, but sadly I'm not that familiar with the trails in that area.

    11k feet though would make me think (assuming my location assesment is correct) would have to be somewhere near Berthoud Pass.

    How about the East side of Argentine above Guanella - Leavenworth Creek - FR248?

    Hints?

    Definitions of flinders on the Web:
    [SIZE=-1]British explorer who mapped the Australian coast (1774-1814)
    bits and splinters and fragments; "it would have shattered in flinders long before it did that damage"
    [/SIZE]

    I'm gonna lean towards the 2nd definition in this instance.

    though technically i suppose at the time you posed the question you were inside.

    Oh okay, that's what I had gleaned from my internet search, but thought it was a clue to the location.

    I don't think my guess is correct, the shadow in the first picture would suggest he is looking east, and I thought he was looking west.

    I would sure like to know. I am almost ready to head out now, and was looking for someplace fresh to go.

    somebody call wheatridge and get the answer

    After consulting yet another guide book, Argentine Pass also seems like it would fit the bill (although it is over 12k).

    Ding, Ding, Ding, correct!

    Where should I deliver these 100 flinders?

    I'm gonna head back up there tomorrow morning early for another recce, this time from the FR 277 end of things.

    If any one is up for it, I'll head out at around 7. a.m.

    Hooray, I can't wait for my flinders!!! Are you going to bring them down one at a time on your bike? I recognized Bard peak in the picture. Its one of my favorite sites - cool pyramid shape indicates good times ahead. That's all I'll say about the exact location.

    Argentine pass is fire roads with a lot of 4wd and atv traffic, and squat for singletrack. You have to get up there early or risk being run over by a beer-swillin', cigar-smokin' 10-year old on a suped-up ATV.

    Thanks for the heads up. I will avoid that area. Obviously my guesses were uneducated guesses as I have not ridden up there.

    PS. When is the next round of this game?

    And where is Tr 83?

    O.K.
    So where exactly is Tr 83 located and how do I access this trail?
