    Johnnie: Even in the best of circumstances, the south road to Tin Cup is not for the faint of mind. If you ain't got reverse on your vehicle, it's gonna be a road rage extravaganza. It's bumpy all year round. Surely not open today, even to folks drivin' a 4wd, high displacement, center line devidin', no-low stuff, this-l-go anywhere tank like Flatiron's. OJ

    You really don't want to go there today as it is probably -10 (that is 10 below Zero)

    Nope - Heard tell but never seen one. I always wondered where else they might be found.

    Default ATV Tour

    Apparently the local Chanber of Commerce sponsors an ATV tour into Tin Cup each September. There was an article about it in the 11/04 Blue Ribbon Coalition Magazine. Not any ghost town pics(drat) but looked interesting. Part of the route was along the old railroad roadbed. Anyway, it's FourteenerNet.com according to the article. I would recommend the Blue Ribbon for membership if you recreate on Public Land. See www.sharetrails.org for info.

    Default Tin Cup

    Johnnie: Weather is great in July. Road up from Pitkin is a little bumpy and narrow though. By the way, I posted some new pics of Tin Cup a couple of weeks ago on this site. Check 'em out. OJ and Bride

    That time of year it is beautiful. You can sometimes run into a day with cold and possibly even snow at that altitiude but it is rare in July.

    If they have some nerve and a 4X4 they should take the pass from St Elmo to get to Tin Cup. That would allow them to see St Elmo and some interesting scenery over the pass.
