    Re: Report/pix of the convention?

    Here are a couple of quick pictures to give you the introduction to the wonderful colors of the yellow aspen and shades of green provided by other species of trees. Our base was the ski resort of Winter Park (9,100 ft) where we had the car show and a couple of dinners. During the day we drove to the Rocky Mountain National Park (12,000 ft), visited the Argo gold mine and stamping mill, took a ride on the Georgetown steam rail road, had a boat tour (or theater) on Grand Lake (very upscale), drove the Glen Wood Springs Canyon and climbed to the quarry of Marble Mountain.

    We drove roads and visited sites that even locals sometime miss. I'll post more pictures when I get them organized. The two below are coming down from the marble quarry and an optional drive near Winter Park.

    Plan on attending New Hampshire next year; New England in October is just a pretty.

    Altitude didn't really present a problem.
