    The area up to Crystal Mill is excellent and full of history. The first part is a bit sketchy, it goes over a bumpy shelf road, that can be intimidating, but it quickly levels out to the valley floor.

    Past Crystal, the road climbs to interesting aspen forests and mountain valleys. Be careful going early in the season, the road drifts over and does not melt until well into summer and there are few areas to turn around. You can wind up backing down the mountain for a significant distance.

    Even areas that look OK to turn around in can be deceptive I ran into a drift on the mountain side, and had to back down for almost a quarter of a mile. When I got to an area that I thought I could turn around in, I almost rolled the jeep. The friend who was standing outside to guide me said that I developed an alarming lean.
