Driving from Ouray to Silverton - Red Mountain Pass

Headed up Red Mountain Pass from Ouray ; a lot of interesting hikes along 550



A stop at an overlook gives you a view of Bear Creek Falls

yep, that is the road in some places


there are some amazing views
looks like it does a good job protecting the road from slides

not the safest roadway in Colorado





some of the road meanders through beautiful parks

part of the red mountain range...too bad clouds are already moving in; there are a lot of old mining towns up near the summit; we explored one called irontown which was quite interesting--maybe a future blog





headed down towards silverton now and does not look like the weather will hold
the long and winding road...
