    Newer Older

    This Rocky Mountain Pass, is on the Million Dollar Highway, between Silvertown and Ouray, Colorado, it is 11.140 ft high or 3306 Meters. The temperature dropped below freezing even in September. It just shows how things change in the mountains. Over that pass we started in Sunshine, rain all the way up snow and ice on the top and the reverse on the way down. diverse conditions you could say

      Ken, we ran into this type of driving while in Utah and Wyoming in the middle of May. I thought we had left the snow behind in NY. Nice shot mate.
