Apex, CO (almost)

A failed adventure is still better than no adventure at all.

I decided to search for Apex Colorado today (a ghost town, circa late 1800’s), but I don’t think I found it. This building was possibly near-ish to the original town, but I’m pretty sure I over-shot.

After realizing Apex wasn’t in the cards for the day, I decided to keep progressing down the already notably rugged path, instead of turning back. Fast forward 3 hours of 4×4 trail that I most certainly should not have been on by myself without a winch, patch kit, and onboard air, and I popped out in Idaho Springs.

Looking at the fire road maps, I was on a network of steady 6-9 (of 10) rated off-road trails for 2 solid hours, with pokey rocks the likes of which I’ve never seen. Needless to say, very impressed with my tires, and the extra 3” of clearance I got in Washington paid off when I only smashed my runners once the entire time.

My goal of heading to the mountains to get away from the smoke was pretty successful at least.

Anyway here are some pictures.
