Dirt Biking in Leadville Colorado (NGPZC)

I took the Yamaha up to Leadville yesterday where I'd ridden the GPZ 
last weekend, and rode Mosquito pass over from Leadville towards 
Fairplay.  I turned around short of Fairplay as the skies were turning 
dark and I didn't want to be sitting on a large chunk of metal at 13,000 
ft in a lightning storm.

The Leadville mining district was all over this area and it's pretty 
cool to ride around and explore some of the old mines as long as you're 
careful and don't fall in something.  The gray in the later pictures is 
rain as I ended up loading up in the rain, but otherwise it was a good 
day of riding.  Leadville sits above 10,000 ft altitude so most of these 
mines are above 11,000 ft.

Here's the link to some pictures:
