The broken arm precludes riding the motorcycle, so I took our Chevy Blazer up over the newly-opened Ouray, Colorado, County Roads 2 and 4. Just beautiful! The Blazer goes a lot slower than the motorcycle! And parts of CR 4 are pretty rough—almost at the Blazer’s limit, given that the Blazer does not have the high clearance of a Jeep. But, I made it, took several pictures, and share one with you above. I do love springtime when everything is so green!

These roads are closed to “all human activities” from January 1st to April 30th every year, presumably so big deer can make little deer. The roads are now open. CR 4 has some rutting and some rocky parts. CR 2 has a bit of rutting, especially close to US Hwy 550, but is otherwise pretty accessible.
