Colorado Trail, Pike-San Isabel National Forest

View from our break point before the return to Kenosha Pass. Notice the red trees on the far ridgeline, evidence of beetle kill, which is spreading throughout the state.

Nat Lopes films the discussion and interviews Matt Sugar.

Mike Van Abel, President and USA Executive Director of the International Mountain Bicycling Association (IMBA), Mark Eller, Communications Director of IMBA and Matt Sugar, Senator Mark Udall’s Central Mountain Regional Director enjoy a downhill section through a meadow of wildflowers.

The half way point to reach Georgia Pass.

The meadows give way to the steep rocky ridgeline and talus fields.
