I think that was the Sheriff's house. He and his two daughters were at home when an avalanche wiped out the house. All three survived. The house was totally wiped out. Happened back in the winter though.We saw a house that was swept by an avalanche just south of Lake City. Lots of trees destroyed too.
I'll be there.JUST AWSUM RG . me and my buddys 6 total will be in brenckenrige for the KTM event .hope too maybe see ya there
Yep, folks at the Baptist church here in Lake City went out there couple weekends ago to help pickup the remains. They said it was pretty much ground into toothpicks. The family lost everything...including a couple of cows that were in the barn. They were doggone lucky to get out of it unhurt.I think that was the Sheriff's house.

I'll be living in Durango by then so hopefully I can get up there for my first KTM event.I'll be there.
Planning to work my way toward Breckenridge: Kinda goes like this - Gunnison/Cement Creek, Sargents, Salida, Leadville, Breckenridge. Spending a few days at each place to ride. If there's anything left of me by 9-12, I'll see yall at the rally.
We were on Cinnamon pass when it closed.Alrighty! Let's move this story on up the mountain.
A "micro burst" a week or so ago caused Cinnamon Pass to close due to mudslide damage to the shelf road going down toward Animas Forks. This threw a wrench into riding plans for folks doing the Alpine Loop. As of today (8/11) the pass is reopened and a path has been made through the remaining 20 feet snow bank at the forks.
To be continued...
