The Florida driver had bad judgement. He should've turned around at the one way sign especially if he wasn't sure. Sounded like he was not familiar with the terrain. Ron, I don't remember a "large rock". If there was one I was very close to it, hugging the wall since the scenic side was near vertical.
The trail is 2 way and easy until you get to the area between the 2 water falls. THEN...I really hugged the wall and was on the brake even with HDC on. It was steep. Ron, what's your guess on the angle? Ron was taking pics and was following me down the incline, he had trouble slowing down,and he was walking! Everytime I stepped on the brake, the LR would stop and slide an inch or two.TG it was forward! I was too busy watching the trail ahead of me to look at the leftside view. ( probably do the Mulder bit....scream like a 10 yr old girl?).
From my quick research Black Bear usually has a rescue at least every 1 or 2 yrs.
Telluride has winter ski lifts, is very touristy, very expensive, and has many super billionaires living in the area
Black Bear is only 1 way going down from the pass, east to west into Telluride. There is a main highway that enters into Telluride but then if you want to do a trail, it's the Imogene Pass trail, easier and also scenic.It travels west to east.
Well if they do close the trail, at least Ron and I can say we did it.
