On Tuesday, Sept. 22, two friends took me on a trip over Boreas Pass. It was a delight.
This has been one of my favorite trips for many years. It is nearby, covers some of the best mountain area and has great distant views of aspen. My late husband, Bill, and I used to go south on U.S. 285 to Como, then northwest over the pass to Breckenredige, have lunch there and then make a fast trip home over routes 9 and 70.
This time we reversed this trip, going out on I-70, then south to Breckenridge, then going over the pass from west to east, then back home on U.S. 285.
