I drove up the east slope of Independence on the way to spending a few days in Aspen. During my stay I cycled up and back down the west slope. Even though I had been out west the entire summer, much of it riding, the altitude still got to me. (The summit sits at over 12,000'.) The descent was fun. During the more curvy parts there were some Harley riders in front of me. I rode behind them and took the lane. The guy immediately in front of me was nice enough to point out rocks and other debris in the road.

Monarch I did east to west fully loaded. Had a hard time with it, but that may have been due in part to doing both Hoosier from Breckenridge and Trout Creek from Fairplay the day before.
