Randy ripple

Pass Bagger is a term for those that cross mountain passes to experience the best scenery and curvy roads. Every year since we moved to Colorado in 1984 I’ve kept track of mountain passes that randy ripple’ve bagged traveling by car, 4WD vehicle, motorcycle, bicycle, or on foot as a way to judge whether or not we really toured the mountains like we want to.

From “The Passes of Colorado” by Ed and Gloria Helmuth: “We have chosen to define a pass as the point used to cross a ridge that divides two watersheds. Divide” and “saddle” are other descriptive words sometimes used to identify passes.
