Today I rode the Scarlett, My 2014 Ural Patrol sidecar rig over to the small town of Como. The town sits on the southern end of the Boreas Pass road, with the city of Breckenridge on the northern end. The road, used to be the railbed for the rail line that ran from these towns.
I would not go much past the actual pass summit itself as the fall colors are not much in evidence on the northern third of the road.
I thought that by going on a Monday I would not have to deal with too many leaf peepers in their cars, I was wrong.
While I am sure that there were much more of them during the weekend; they were enough today that it was sometimes very hard to get a shot of the full color without a car being in the shot.
After I returned to the town of Como, I checked out the train station buildings and got the following "then and now" shots. The B&W photos were on informational displays in town and at the station.
I thought too also take a picture of the railroad roundhouse building in town but the gates were locked. This didn't stop some tourist dirt bags from California and Florida from sneaking under the gate to look around. I left to go back to camp instead.
I got back by 2:00 p.m. and after a quick lunch decided to go out riding on Yagi, my TW200 and check out the Eastern side of the camping area.
I spotted only one campsite occupied as opposed to eight campsites on the western side along county road 39 which is the main access road for the dispersed camping sites.
