Response to I'm so excited, I drove Red Mountain Pass all by my little self. :)
I was born & raised in Ouray and worked at Sonza's Grocery in the late 50s and soon after I got my license, the owner asked if I wanted to deliver groceries to an older gentleman who lived in the almost-deserted town of Ironton (just below the Idarado mine). I said YES and took off all by myself. I then understood why it bothered visitors for the first time as I was so scared even though I had ridden many times. By the 3rd time I delivered groceries to Ironton I loved it and still do to this day. Black Bear in a jeep -- well that is a different story...
