After that, no paved mountain roads seemed as scary.
Great memories from Imogene Pass. Haven't done it on a bike,, yet. Took the Landcruiser across with the kids, then my wife and I did it later in the Tacoma. Biggest mistake I made was letting my wife see BalckBear Pass while we were on Imogene. She will never do BlackBear.. Took the bike over Tin Cup, Hancock, Tomichi, Mosquito, and Schofield, but haven't been able to get to Imogene..
We've pulled the AS over most of the paved passes in Colo. No problems, we just go a bit slow on the downhills.
