    Hrmmm, you're both right, but since @Blakebird narrowed it down first, take it.
    Yeah, Odom Point, actually a bit higher than Engineer Pass. Might recognize these views better...

    I was late to seeing this one but it is a cool angle from that overlook! I have actually ridden up that road but it was a LONG time ago...probably 1985 or 1986! :gerg It went near the top of Engineer Mountain and down the SE side of the ridge to Yvonne Pass...now closed.

    it looks like the area south of where the Four Mile Freakout used to be, when we rode from there down to Cotopaxi - there was a wide open area south of the 175 Rd (I think it was south of it :D )

    Close enough, it's the intersection of 729 and 786 north of Del Norte.

    My pics never have anything good to go off of to recognize the spots. :(

    Hint: Theres a Cabin up on the hill to my left here. For as long as I can remember there has been a blow up (sex) doll propped up in the upstairs window.
