Western Dragon Drive, Wednesday Sept, 5th.
« on: August 22, 2007, 09:47:27 PM »
A member of a MINI club is driving out to visit family that lives in Parker/Aurora area, he drives an R50 like me :).  We are planning on a drive up to Mt. Evans via the Western Dragon (from Bergen Park to Mt. Evans) and take some pics on top of the hill during the day on Wednesday.

I know most people work and can't make it, but figured if there was anyone that can swing a day off, or does not work during the week like me, well, they should join us for a photo op, and a great  opportunity for some twisties with 2 slower non "S" R50's.  :wink: :nod:

We will probably leave from my house in Parker sometime after rush hour, maybe around 10am or so.  Drop a line here if you are interested, and I can PM you address, numbers and directions, etc.

We could not do the last 5 miles, they closed the road as it is already snowing up there, so we stopped at the lake and grabbed a few shots.  All in all, we did about 150 miles through the front range, and really enjoyed the western dragon.  It was like 40 degrees at the top and 84 degrees here in town.  Well, now it is 66, but that is because it just dumped a butt load of rain :)  Had a great time, it was nice meeting Brian and his wife, and Mike (Redline).

thanks for putting those up Mike.  I edited your post and removed the pics that show the license plate numbers for privacy reasons.  If you block out the numbers, feel free to put them back up :thumbsup:

I am uploading more right now, from all 3 of us.
