This was awesome.

Just got back from an extended weekend in Colorado, and the driving roads outside of metropolitan Denver were nothing short of outstanding. Twisty, seemingly endless in their supply, and conspicuously devoid of the men in blue, they were enough to make this driving enthusiast from the East Coast green with envy- living in the city has its trade-offs.

Nice little 90-mile loop that I got to sample. Shame this occupied only a portion of my morning; time permitting, I would have loved to have hit this all day long:

Despite only having an older and underpowered Subaru Legacy to work with, I was in driving heaven. With the elevation approaching 10,000 feet, temperatures dipping below 32, and frost clearly visible on the tarmac, I was grateful for the winter tires that the Subie was otherwise prematurely wearing- not to mention its AWD.
