I've become interested in the time of stagecoach travel in Colorado history and hope I can eventually post photos of what remain of some of those roads.
Our library owns your book and I'm on the waiting list. I see that its gotten excellent reviews on Amazon - good for you.

Mr. B... Would be great to see any stagecoach stuff you come across or capture.

Daamud.... Nice. Looks like the barn on the right lost its top half... and added a few windows?

The Colorado Midland Railroad had a line running from Colorado Springs to the high meadows of South Park. Along the way was this stop in Divide, on the western sides of Pikes Peak...

In 1905...


Many times I've ridden by blissfully on U.S. 24 and never noticed the historic depot!

Ahhhh... I used to be able to see tortured Devil's Head from the west from my home before moving further west to Park County. Thanks for the then and now.

Finally got my hands on Steve's book "The Complete Guide to Motorcycling Colorado". That's a pretty ambitious title considering that we have some of the best riding on earth in our state but I have yet to see another book that comes close. I just spent three days dual-sporting in the Red Feather Lakes area and can testify that his inventory of rides there is a good one.
If you live elsewhere in the country and wanted to come to Colorado to do some riding you would want to have a copy of this book. If you already live in Colorado and like me, are always planning the next ride, this is for you, too.

A very enthusiastic +1. Well worth the $20 or so it costs at Amazon.

I have driven by the Argo Mill and Tunnel on I 70 countless times. Finally went inside a few months ago. Tunnel was once known as the Newhouse Tunnel. After seeing lots of falling down mill buildings it is worth a few bucks to go inside one that is in pretty good condition even if most of the actual milling equipment is gone now.

Taco, OSJ.... I have a thing for tunnels! They often tell a notable tale, with many passing by and through where you have stood. Taco... I passed the Argo Mill today. But yes, I have yet to pause there!

cutsit... Looks like a redone roof?

Bob, scarter... Thanks and enjoy.
