Colorado Ghost Town Waypoints / Tracks

I found this web-site http://www.ghosttowns.com/states/co/co.html
I'll be traveling to Colorado early September. Does any one have the Waypoints/tracks for some Ghost Towns. I'm looking at the Ouray area and other surrounding areas. I'll be riding a R1150GS, what should I beware of? Good camping spots appreciated.

Going through Ophir and Imogene Passes?

I just rode my WR250 through there. I'd love to hear how those passes are on a GS.

I think you will have a great time. Sept can be a wet month in Western Central Colorado. The guys at All Sports Honda BMW can be real helpfull on ride sugestions #970-243-7730 ask for Sam Kloberdanze in sales. Tell him Michael Slinkard told you to call. Some of those roads will be a real butt kicker on a big GS. Have fun!

Change of plans

I know the GS is a beast. So I purchased a KLR650, about 250 lbs lighter.
Outfitted with Dunlop 606's, I'm ready.

After reading about BigDog http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=147232
I've decided to pack lighter than usual. We are tailering the bikes which is the main reason for the change in rides. We'll head to Ouray and go from there. I'll post tracks and waypoints when I get back. If it rains we'll move to Caynonlands. Hope the rain holds off.
