I like the high country.

Yesterday, I drove the Moffat Road to the Forest Lakes Trailhead, then walked to/over the Needle's Eye Tunnel, across "Hell Hill", and stopped at this point above the trestles for the old Moffat Road Rail Line. It took me 3.5 hours to get home from from the spot where I took this photo. An hour of walking, and two-and-a-half hours of driving. The 12 miles from the Rollinsville/East Portal turnoff to the Forest Lakes Trailhead are REALLY bumpy and rocky.
