This shortcut is incredibly steep, rough and not for the faint of heart. We took the `good` road down and it wasn`t much better.. but it was a beautiful day spent on this lovely mountain chasing butterflies and getting pictures of the local flora and fauna. Due to the heavy smoke from forest fires at the time a glorious view of the Rocky Mountains was lost to us..
