As some of you know, due to mechanical and other stupid stuff, I have failed in prior attempts at the conquest of Cumbres & La Manga passes in the far south of Colorado. Wednesday the 18th, weather permitting (should be better than the Boston Marathon today), I am pulling out of Chama, NM in route to the town of Antonito, CO., by way of these two mountain passes. My trusty SAG, Stella, will be with me — and anyone else who wants to see the cool side of 40 degrees at the top is welcome. Sun is promised, and I hope will shine brightly!!
