We might have actually passed each other somewhere. I had just gotten to pavement around 5.
Hey, If you are thinking about doing Pearl Pass, consider going in fall as well. The most beautiful expo/overland trip I've ever done started in Marble, went over Schoefield pass, devils punchbowl, to Pearl Pass and into Aspen. I've got a TON of pics of that trip... can you post up full trip report pictures in this thread!?
7/19/13 - Due to heavy rains in the area the trail is blocked by a rock/mud slide about 1/2 mile west of the Devil's Punch Bowl. We dug out a small opening to allow an ATV to pass. But had to turn around in our jeep.
