    We had just bought our Avalanche and were looking for some spring 4-wheel adventure. Boy did we find it. Using online information, we found the unimproved Lamartine Road which promised to get us from Idaho Springs to Georgetown with lots of bumps along the way. What we didn't expect was the 8 foot deep, 10 foot diameter sink whole we passed, cutting the already narrow road in half. Not much farther up, the snow was deep and we couldn't tell whether the road was safe or not. Having seen that sink hole made us very nevous so we decided it would be better to turn back than to risk going forward and burying our new truck. Needless to say, we didn't make it to Georgetown via Lamartine Road! Happy trails!
