I ran across this memorial this past week. I knew about it but until you see it in person it doesn't have quite the same effect. Some parts of Red Mountain Pass are disconcerting in summer. Nevermind winter. I never want to cross that pass in the winter. No shoulders, no guardrails, 1000 ft. drop-offs, it's a shelf road in many spots. Oh, yeah there's some serious up and down too. This pass makes Berthoud Pass, Loveland Pass, and Independence Pass look like relaxing Sunday drives.
