Molas Pass

Molas Pass is situated between Durango and Silverton. At it's summit, the elevation is 10,640 feet.
Carolyn and I drove over Molas Pass to Silverton on 550 today. What a beautiful drive. It would be a nice ride on the bike - if I had a bike! Dirty white snow still hides in the shady patches along the road at the top.

Silverton itself is a tiny tourist trap with some very cute buildings and homes. It survives on the tourist trade as it is the end of the line for the Durango-Silverton Narrow Gauge Railway. The train passengers get an hour in town for lunch and trinket buying.
