    Way north east from there.

    vehicle-accessible pass [does not say a jeep can go over the other side anymore.]

    I don't know any road #s

    Mosquito is the highest PASS for a vehicle, Nothing but hikers or hard core bikers can pass over Argentine.

    This is Argentines west side.

    Great picture!!
    I always thought Argentine was a 4x4 trail up high. I am trying to remember if I ever did it on the DR, but not sure.
    OK, I got it. The road to the top of the pass is moderate and then at the top it goes into a pack trail as eemsreno showed in his picture

    No reply's huh? Both peaks in the background are 14ers. Looking for the name of the peak my bike is on.

    I can't come up with anything NMTrailboss, need more hints.
    Are you near Flag Mt.?

    Hard to believe that Argentine pass was once a stage road.

    No.

    Been a couple of days...give away clue: The peak my bike is on is named after the capital city of New Mexico.

    Somewhere around here there are pics of Yellow Pig doing Argentine solo down to the board and having to turn back (two man operation getting a bike thru that).
    Ironbrewer and ere109 and someone else....Shearboy? made it all the way down many years ago.

    (I'd guess Santa Fe but I don't wanna put up any pictures :lol3)
