High in rugged, Southwestern Colorado the mineralized slopes of the San Juans have lured fortune seekers and adventurers alike. Boom and bust mining towns popped up all along the hills and valleys: Ouray, Telluride, Silverton, Creede. Today, decrepit wood and ghost stories are all that remain of the saloons and the salty miners that toiled the land. Load up the mountain bikes for an epic single-track shred through the high alpine tundra, but while youre sharing a glass of whiskey in the hut later that night... dont let the embers die. We hear the ghost of ol Curly Jefferson has been spotted haunting the hills, and he has a hankering for bikers.
